We believe living on campus fosters student learning, development, and personal growth.

We show dedication to our students by creating experiences and physical spaces that recognize the unique challenges and opportunities of being an Oredigger at Colorado School of Mines.

We are committed to providing intentional learning by facilitating a safe, inclusive, and academically focused environment.

We challenge and encourage students to be critical thinkers and civically-engaged leaders in a diverse global community.
