Student Life

Welcome to Colorado State University-Pueblo!

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 more on-campus activities as well as outdoor activities.


There are many advantages of living on campus. It provides students the convenience of living close to the classroom and helps students to be more engaged in learning and campus activities. It benefits ELI students immensely because they will have more opportunities to practice English, learn 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's Student Health Services exists to help students achieve maximum physical health so 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, health education/promotion to all students.

Medical insurance is highly recommended for all international students. Insurance is available for purchase through the University.

An immunization from 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. An international immunization record must also be provided before being allowed to register for course work at CSU-Pueblo.
