Colorado Mountain College Vail Valley in Edwards will host a ribbon cutting and open house on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at the Edwards campus for the college’s new student apartments. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. 

The apartments are part of a $45 million initiative to provide affordable places to live for CMC students. Due to the scarcity and high cost of housing in the mountain resort communities that CMC serves, the college has constructed four identical apartment buildings on campuses in Vail Valley at Edwards as well as Spring Valley at Glenwood Springs, Steamboat Springs and Breckenridge. 

Designed primarily for degree-seeking students who live and work in these mountain communities year-round, each building has up to 36 rental apartments, with a combination of studio and two-bedroom units. Each apartment features a full kitchen, full bathroom and living space, with rents below market rates.

CMC Vail Valley’s student apartments ribbon cutting will take place at 2 p.m., Sept. 19, at 150 Miller Ranch Road, Edwards. Following presentations featuring CMC President Carrie Besnette Hauser and CMC Vice President and Vail Valley Campus Dean Marc Brennan plus other college and construction personnel involved in the project, a tour of the apartments will be offered.
