If University Housing is unable to assign you to Amplify’s designated halls (Pinon and Alpine Hall), you will still be able to participate in Amplify, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall.
  • Our application for Fall 2021 is open. At this time we are only accepting incoming first year students for Fall 2021.

You are welcome to apply to multiple Learning Communities at CSU. However, keep in mind if you apply (and are accepted) into multiple Learning Communities that have a residential component (require you to live in a specific hall), you will have to chose which community you want to participate in. You will be contacted by email and given a deadline to choose which community you prefer to participate in. If you do not respond by the deadline, your spot in either community might not be held.

Typically Amplify moves in one day earlier than the rest of campus. However, due to COVID-19 we are unsure of the move-in date for Fall 2021 (it will likely be the same date as everyone else). Please check back with University Housing’s important dates page, as it will be the site with the most up to date info.

At this time, we are only accepting new incoming first year students into the CNS Learning Community for Fall 2021. However, we encourage you to apply for Year 2 at CSU floor in Alpine Hall. Please contact us if you have questions.
