CAM RCC members have distinct academic and co-curricular
experiences to connect with the arts and creative industries. The CAM RCC
communal spaces are designed and equipped to foster making, creativity,
and collaboration amongst peers and classmates. Students may opt-in to participate in the RCC.
The Residential Creative Community is a way for CAM freshmen to connect with other CAM students, faculty, and staff on campus. Any CAM freshmen who will be staying at the City Heights Residence Hall can opt-in to being a part of the CAM RCC. Here what students in the RCC receive:
Incoming CAM Freshman for Fall 2023 should first accept your CU Denver admission in your application portal. They can then apply to CU Denver Housing and incate that they want to live in the City Heights Residence Hall. Please note that you can't request to be in the RCC on the Housing Application. We'll reach out to you later to see you want to opt-in to the RCC.
In April 2023, the Housing Office will provide CAM a list of CAM incoming Fall 2023 students who have submitted a CIty Heights Housing Application. We will then reach out to these students to see if they'd like to join the CAM RCC. There will be a short RCC application for the student to fill out. Anyone who completes the application is admitted to the RCC. Be sure to check your email regularly for information from CU Denver Housing & Dining Services and the College of Arts & Media.
First-Year Experience (FYE) courses are designed to ease students transition to university life and guide them into this world of social, academic, and professional possibilities. Members of CAM RCC are strongly encouraged to register for one of the CAM UNIV 1110 classes. The CAM UNIV 1100 courses are tailored to the unique experience of art, film, and music students. The CAM-UNIV is a required, one-credit course for all RCC members. This is a tuition free first semester course!
