Learn More About the CAM 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:

  • A CAM RCC roommate - Choosing to join the RCC means that you will be placed with another CAM student.  
  • A monthly RCC meeting and RCC community dinner. CAM faculty and staff will attend the meetings and community dinners to present about their areas and the college.
  • Socializing and networking with other RCC students.
  • A CAM faculty mentor
  • A CAM student mentor (some of you may already be matched with a CAM student mentor)
  • The opportunity to participate in an UNIV 1110 class for first semester CAM students. This class prepares students for college success. 
  • RCC members will have the opportunity to be a part of the RCC Leadership Group; these students serve as the voice for all RCC students.

How to Apply to the CAM RCC

Incoming CAM Freshman for Fall 2023 should expect to receive information about joining the CAM RCC by April 2023. Be sure to check your email regularly for information from CU Denver Housing & Dining Services and the College of Arts & Media.
