Why Peloton West is a Great Alternative to College Housing in Boulder

College is a nerve-racking yet new and exciting time in your kids’ lives. For most, it’s the first time leaving the comfort of their childhood home where the coffee is brewed each morning and hot meals are cooked each night, but it’s also the first time they get to be independent and live on their own.

Here’s the big question. Should they live in a dorm on campus, or invest in long-term housing? While staying on campus keeps them close to class and school activities, moving a few blocks down the road has some serious perks for both kids and parents. Here’s why Peloton West is a great alternative to on-campus college housing in Boulder.


More Freedom and Responsibility

While the on-campus living rules are made to create a positive environment for everyone, many students prefer the idea of running on their own time. Off-campus housing means more independence and responsibility. Students having their own place will teach them real-life experiences, like cooking, cleaning, and taking care of utilities, which will better prepare them for life post-graduation.

Gaining Equity And Investment

Investing in a new mortgage on top of college tuition is a lot, but in the long run, you’ll actually be saving money. On-campus housing is notorious for being overpriced, especially for what you’re getting (which isn’t much).

Instead of paying a monthly rent, you’ll be paying into a mortgage which increases your equity. Investing in a growing city like Boulder is a purchase you won’t regret, and your kids won’t have to worry about finding a place to live after they graduate. It’s a win, win!

More Space And Modernized Living

You want your kids to feel comfortable, and sharing a crowded room and sleeping in a twin bed in the dorms is not. Peloton West’s open floor plans, modern appliances, and designer finishes will help them feel at home. From class to cafeteria food, being on campus 24/7 can be draining.

After a long day of class and studying, leaving campus and going home to relax is a much-needed break. They’ll be able to cook wholesome meals in a spacious kitchen while enjoying views of the Flatirons out their window.

Fun in the Heart of Boulder

Traveling ten minutes down the road from CU Boulder campus puts students right in the heart of downtown. At Peloton West, they’ll be steps away from some of the best restaurants and shops in the city. Whether they’re spending a night exploring the city or looking for a cozy night in, there’s plenty to do. Watch a movie in our theater room, play ping pong and billiards in our game center, or go for a swim in our year-round rooftop pool.


College is a big transition for the whole family, so help your kids make it one they’ll enjoy. At Peloton West, they’ll be able to make their space comfortable without all the rules and regulations that come with living on campus. From new found independence and living in the perfect location with a sleek setup and stunning amenities, you can rest easy at night that your kids will have the best college experience.
