CSU-P opened three new dorms in the last couple of years. Belmont, the original dorm building on campus, was built when the school first opened. Belmont has floor bathrooms, which means there are no bathrooms or sinks in your rooms; students share a common bathroom with the whole floor, with one for girls and one for boys. Since Belmont has been open for many years, it’s not in the best shape. Also, it’s the cheapest dorm you can live in, so most of the time students won’t take care of the furniture and walls. In Belmont, though, you can have your choice of living in your own room or living with a roommate. Living with a roommate is cheaper for obvious reasons. There are some vending machines in Belmont, but there is no food stand like some of the other dorms. Also, Belmont is the only dorm that has an oven students can use to bake things.
Greenhorn, Culebra, and Crestone are the three new dorms. They are all clean inside, with new furniture, and the rooms are spacious. Unlike Belmont, there are bathrooms in every room in these dorms. You can have your choice of a roommate with a bathroom, your own room with your own bathroom, a roommate with a shared bathroom with another room, or your own room with a shared bathroom. All of these choices come at different costs. These three dorms all look pretty similar and have the same setup inside.
