Housing and Transportation

During their stay in Boulder, students typically rent rooms from community members at a cost of $400 - $600 per month. A local, private referral list is available to students upon enrollment. This housing referral list includes pertinent contact information, along with details on location and distance from The Rolf Institute.

Many of the living situations are within walking distance or a short bike ride or a short drive to The Rolf Institute. The bus system throughout Boulder and Denver is quiet convenient. A local bus route (#205) drops students off just a block away from the school. Click here for RTD (Regional Transportation District) website.
