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. CAM will be reaching out to all incoming CAM freshmen with completed housing contracts about the CAM RCC in early June. Students may opt-in to participate in the RCC.

Learn More & Apply for 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. If you have an incoming CAM student in mind that you have met, please send that information to housing@ucdenver.edu by June 20th to ensure that they have that information to place you. Otherwise, you will be matched with a CAM RCC student by the Housing Office. 
  • 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.  

The first step the students need to take to join the CAM RCC is to submit a housing application for the CU Denver City Height Residence Hall for the 2022-23 academic year. A student must have a completed housing contract for the City Heights Residence Hall in order to be a part of the CAM RCC. Once a student has done this, incoming CAM freshmen students can apply to join the CAM RCC by completing this form

The First-Year Experience

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 that take place on Fridays from 9:30-10:45 for the Fall 2022 semester. 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 LLCC members. This is a tuition free first semester course!
