Living and Learning
The engineering community extends beyond the classroom. The following Residential Academic Programs (RAPs) are available to engineering students and provide a supportive community and academic support. An academic RAP is a great first step toward your future as an engineer–turning ideas into reality!
The Engineering Quad
Of special interest to engineering students is the Quadrangle, located directly west of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The “Quad” comprises four small halls–Aden, Brackett, Crosman, and Cockerell. Besides being a convenient place to live, residents receive additional academic support services through the Quadrangle Living and Learning Community.
This innovative and unique program is offered by the Department of Housing in cooperation with the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The community offers on-site tutoring, access to an extensive computer network configured to match the engineering computer labs, wireless computer access, enhanced academic support services, and calculus work groups in-residence.
Andrews Hall is part of the Kittredge community on the southeast edge of campus. Recently renovated, Andrews is the recipient of a gold rating in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification issued by the United States Green Building Council. The dorm houses approximately 200 students and is home to the Engineering Honors Residential Academic Program (EHP) and GoldShirt Program.
The Engineering Honors Residential Academic Program provides an educational experience that matches the abilities and ambitions of some of the very best students at CU. The core values of EHP are “excellence, community, and opportunity.” Students must apply to be accepted into this program; for more information click here.
