Amid the bustle of building activity at Colorado State University, a multipurpose jewel has emerged between Prospect Road and Lake Street. Aggie Village opened in August 2016 as the largest housing development ever built on campus.
You can experience our newest community firsthand at the Aggie Village Open House, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2– 4 p.m. Tours of the complex will include community spaces, a model apartment and the new classroom spaces, and refreshments will be served.
Managed by CSU’s Apartment Life in Housing & Dining Services, Aggie Village has 973 beds and replaces the former Aggie Village North, which had 290 beds. Aggie Village South has been renamed Aggie Village Family, catering to students with families who wish to live on campus. Kitchen and wi-fi upgrades are on the horizon for these units.
Originally built in the early 1960s, Aggie Village has seen only modest renovations over the years, until the three new buildings were built on the north side of Prospect. Aggie Village houses a mix of upperclass undergraduate and graduate students, visiting scholars, and post-doctoral fellows.
About 75 percent of the beds are currently devoted to undergraduates, some of whom are Intercultural Connections Community (ICC) students interested in studying abroad or pursuing careers in international fields. “Aggie Village houses more traditional-aged students than some of our other apartment communities, and has more than doubled our inventory,” according to Apartment Life’s Louie Sanchez.
