HOUSING

Freshman Live-in Policy

All single, first year freshmen under the age of 21 with a home address more than 50 miles from campus, are required to live in the Belmont Residence Hall. The housing agreement is for the entire academic year. Students who live in the residence hall are required to have a meal plan. All questions regarding this policy should be directed toward the Housing Office staff. They can be reached at 719-549-2602.

Belmont Residence Hall

Belmont Residence Hall (BRH) houses nearly 500 students in three wings, which are joined by a large commons area. The commons area serves as a gathering area and has a large-screen television and a kitchen. The housing office and student mailroom are located adjacent to the area. The lower level of the commons area consists of a recreation area (including a court for volleyball and basketball), study lounge, and laundry facilities. BRH also has a computer lab, pool table, ping-pong table, vending machines, an ice machine, and many other amenities. Our front desk has extended hours and is staffed by students to answer questions and check out equipment.

All rooms are designed for two people, single occupancy is available on a very limited basis. Students can be placed on a single room waiting list based on the date in which the Housing Office received their room reservation form and deposit. Rooms are approximately 12 feet by 13 feet in size. Each room contains two extra long twin beds, with drawer space below, two desks with a study lamp built into the desk, two bookshelves, and two desk chairs.

A $125 deposit must accompany each application for space in BRH; $25 of the deposit is used as an application fee and is non-refundable; $100 of the fee is used as a security/damage deposit. The deposit is held in escrow for the duration of the student’s occupancy.

University Village at Walking Stick Student Apartment Housing
(In cooperation with Colorado State University-Pueblo)

University Village at Walking stick, the Colorado State University-Pueblo on-campus apartment community for students, offers a unique housing opportunity for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Students exempt from the BRH live-in requirement, including freshman with a home address within 50 miles of Pueblo and those freshman over 21 are also eligible to reside in the apartments.

Constructed in 1997, these spacious two-story town homes offer an array of amenities and conveniences for students seeking the benefits of living at the heart of the CSU-Pueblo Campus. The apartments were built for energy efficiency and feature energy saving appliances and features throughout.

The apartments offer campus High-Speed Internet access in each bedroom, a common area house phone, and premium cable TV in each bedroom and the commons. Each two-story apartment also features individual apartment controlled heating and air-conditioning, dishwasher, refrigerator, and range. Two floor plans are available with 4 students living in each 4-bedroom, 2-bath town home.

The interior of each apartment offers a common area kitchen, dining and living room on the first floor and a common area study loft on the second floor. Each floor plan features two private locking bedrooms and a semi-private locking vanity and bathroom on each floor. Bedrooms range in size from 99 square feet to 124 square feet with large closets. A private phone is available at additional cost in each bedroom. An inviting patio also offers access to a storage room and another storage area is offered in the apartment home.

Each student at “The Sticks” has an individual housing contract with payment options to fit his or her academic funding situation. Academic year occupancy begins August 1st and extends through May offering an expanded period of living to accommodate student’s specific needs. Full calendar year occupancy is always available. By design students in the apartments are not required to purchase a meal plan.

The University Village at Walking Stick town homes are located west of the Art/Music Building and directly behind the Belmont Residence Hall. Students at “The Sticks” experience a more private and independent living environment while at the heart of CSU-Pueblo campus life. Classes and campus facilities, just minutes away, are easily accessible and convenient for a busy student’s life.

STUDENT LIFE PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

Counseling

The mission of the Counseling Center is to provide students with a means to more fully understand those issues that interfere with the effective functioning of their lives and to then support them as they make new or different choices. We are not here to “analyze” individuals or to give them advice. Rather it is our intent to act as guides for students who are attempting to live happier, more enjoyable, productive lives.

Your visits with a counselor are confidential and the records of your counseling sessions are kept separate from you academic records. There are some exceptions to confidentiality and they relate to those situations in which an individual describes behavior that indicates a potential for child abuse or threats to harm oneself or someone else.

The Counseling Center staff operates in a manner consistent with the concept that any client of the Center should be fully informed of their treatment options and should participate in decisions as to the nature of that treatment. We also work to honor and protect each individual’s values, beliefs, and general orientation to life. We act in a manner that demonstrates respect for and supports an individual regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, or country of origin.

The Center’s staff works with individuals whose concerns include stress, depression, loneliness, difficulty adjusting to college life, difficulty adjusting to life in America, suicidal thoughts, relationship violence, sexual assault, eating disorders, and marriage and family conflict to name a few. Crisis services are provided during regular business hours.

The Counseling Center also offers walk-in consultation, which is available to anyone who has a particular question about a mental health issue. This service is provided to help the student who has a question, who doesn’t believe they need counseling, to talk to a counselor in order to get specific information related to their question.

The Counseling Center is a free service to all CSU-Pueblo students.

ODP also offers one-day and weekend mountaineering trips, climbs, bike rides, and of course ski ventures to many of Colorado’s finest resorts.

The Outdoor program activities are open to student, faculty, staff, alumni and guests of the University. ODP trips are a great way for participants to develop new friendships, learn lifelong wilderness skills, develop leadership skills, increase interpersonal skills, and expand appreciation and concern for the environment. From the first-timer to the expert, ODP has something for everyone.

The Challenge Rope Course consists of a series of 33 elements. The course offers a safe yet challenging environment designed to promote cooperation and group problem solving skills, and develop individual self-confidence.

In the spring of 2001, the fee was changed to a permanent fee and renamed the Special Events Fee.

ASG also works to make students aware of administrative decisions on campus by having Senators as representatives on most of the boards and committees on campus.

ASG functions through three branches of government: legislative, executive and judicial. The legislative branch, the ASG Senate, is composed of 15 senators elected from the student body. It is presided over by the speaker of the Senate. The executive branch consists of the president and the vice president. The judicial branch is composed of five justices, one of whom is designated the chief justice. The senate meets weekly.

Clubs

CSU-Pueblo students have opportunities to take part in the activities of a number of clubs, organizations, and honor societies. Membership often is based on special qualifications. Students interested in starting a new official campus group must first find a faculty or staff member willing to sponsor the group. Students then must obtain a charter packet from the Associated Students Government (ASG) Office and complete and return the forms to ASG. Five copies of a proposed constitution should be submitted to the chairperson of the Club Organization and Facilitating Committee (COFC).

Following is a list of the Campus Clubs:
