Move-In 2016: Record number of students living on campus

Colorado State is looking at a record number of students living on campus this semester. Between residence halls and on-campus apartments, the estimated total is 7,850, according to Tonie Miyamoto, director of communications and sustainability for Housing & Dining Services.

Residence halls and dining centers open at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18. Upperclassmen, graduate students and international students have already begun moving into the brand-new apartments at Aggie Village.

Students moving into halls on the north side of campus – Allison, Parmalee, Corbett, Laurel Village, Durward and Westfall – should use the Highway 14/Mulberry Street exit.”

This interactive map link was sent to all students planning to live on campus to help them find their way home.

As always, information booths staffed by helpful CSU volunteers will be set up around campus to provide information, directions and other assistance to arriving students and families.

The City of Fort Collins requires cardboard to be recycled, and Housing & Dining Eco Leaders will be on hand to collect empty boxes. Last year, CSU recycled more than 46,000 pounds of cardboard during Move-In Week.

And this year Miyamoto is excited to announce that thin-film recycling will also be offered, for responsible disposable of plastic wrapping as well as boxes.
