Student Life

CSU-Pueblo is much more than a place to learn. We provide students with excellent on-campus housing and dining, health care services, and many on-campus as well as outdoor activities.


There are many advantages to living on campus. It provides the convenience of living close to the classroom and helps students be more engaged in learning and campus activities. It benefits ELI students immensely because they have more opportunities to practice English, learn about American culture, and establish long-term friendships with local students.

CSU-Pueblo has four fully furnished, apartment-style residence halls. They are Crestone Hall, Culebra Hall, Greenhorn Hall, and Belmont Hall. Each hall offers its own personal and unique communities within. The comfortable, convenient, and secure environment makes students feel at home.

CSU-Pueblo provides students with several on-campus dining options. The Columbine Café prepares buffet-style meals with a variety of nutritious food and beverages. La Cantina offers an array of retail dining options, and students can grab a snack between classes at other locations as well. Students who live on campus are required to purchase a meal plan.


CSU-Pueblo’s Student Health Services exists to help students achieve maximum physical health so that they may participate fully in the educational and personal growth opportunities afforded by the University. Student Health Services offers the highest quality primary health care as well as health education/promotion to all students.

Patients are seen by appointment. Walk-ins are welcome and will be seen at the first available time.

Medical insurance is highly recommended for all international students.

An Immunization form must be completed by a medical professional for every student and submitted to the Health Services Office during the first semester of attendance at CSU-Pueblo.
