Welcome home!

While RMCAD does not offer on campus student housing, we have formed relationships with multiple Denver area apartment communities and can provide you with detailed information in our Housing Guide.

Apartments and Rentals

There are apartment complexes and rental options available within close proximity to campus. Our Office of Student Life is available to assist in finding an apartment or rental that meets your needs, and can even help you find a roommate. Download our Housing Guide to view a recommended list of apartments and discover more resources to help you in your search!

Because college housing is more fun with friends and prices for housing in Denver can be high; we recommend finding a roommate or two to split the cost of living. If you are looking for a roommate before you move, you can fill out our Roommate Form and submit it to the Student Life Coordinator at mkern@rmcad.edu. The Roommate Form is posted to our Housing Board on campus and on our Housing page on Facebook for other students to view.

Download a copy of the Roommate Form. If you have Facebook, we highly recommend joining our Housing page so that you can connect with other students and stay up-to-date on the latest listings for rentals in the area.

Search tools

There are many tools you can use to search for available apartments and houses in the Denver area. Zumper is a free resource, which allows you to search for an apartment, complete one rental application, and submit it to as many apartments as you like.

Furnished Living Option

Need a place to stay, but don’t want to lug all of that big furniture with you? RMCAD has partnered with Cort, a furniture rental and sales company. Cort can furnish almost any apartment you choose to lease and are able to set up packages specific to the number of roommates you have. They also offer discounts to RMCAD students and have a used furniture warehouse where you can buy items at a discounted rate.
