Leave your car in the covered parking area and use our bikes to cruise to Downtown or CSU in a matter of minutes.

Everything you need is included. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway to enjoy many of the festivals and special events held downtown (summer and fall are full of music and art, fall and winter you can ice-skate in the square or ride in a horse drawn carriage to dinner, visiting a CSU student, visiting a new grandchild, or are a professional looking for a place to stay for several months--we know you will be comfortable here.

Please email for monthly rate.

Second unit available across the hall for larger family or friend reunions. See listing 313635. Also, we own a one bedroom on the first floor of the building. See listing 478736.

Note: This is an older building that is being maintained and restored--built in 1967. The HOA is constantly working on updating the property but please note that this is not a brand new development. The common areas are adequate but not resort quality. This condo is on the third floor of a walk-up building. The stairs are inside of secured building so weather is not an issue when going up and down stairs. As with any building with shared units you can sometimes smell what people are cooking or smoking inside of their units in the hallways and stairwells. The condo itself is not affected, it is mostly the stairwell and the HOA is working on improved ventilation and policy to address this.

About Laura Jacobsen

Native Coloradoan and outdoors enthusiast. Localvore and possible small-time farmer to be, I love to stay downtown sometimes and I keep the place in good shape for anyone else who wanders our way. A wife and mother of two who still loves to play.

Laura Jacobsen purchased this Condo in 2009

Why Laura Jacobsen chose University Park

We love this area of Fort Collins and we wanted to be able to stay there sometimes as well. This is an older building that is being maintained and restored--built in 1967. The HOA is constantly working on updating the property but please note that this is not a brand new development. The common areas are adequate but not resort quality. This condo is on the third floor of a walk-up building. The stairs are inside of secured building so weather is not an issue when going up and down stairs. As with any building with shared units you can sometimes smell what people are cooking or smoking inside of their units in the hallways and stairwells.

What makes this Condo unique

Fantastic food within walking distance at many local restaurants. Great shopping on tree-lined streets. Many festivals, running races, and music oriented activities most of the year. Winter offers quaintly lit streets and horse drawn carriage rides. The Lyric Cinema downtown shows independent films and serves up a lot more than a bag of popcorn. Easy access to great hiking and to the Poudre Canyon which offers rafting, hiking, x-country skiing, fishing, mountain biking and just about any other outdoor adventure you can dream up.

                                                                  This little oasis fit our needs perfectly! The kitchen was well appointed and so cool with the copper countertops. The owners check-in and check-out instructions were very clear.

                                                                  We could not believe how peaceful it was at all times of the day and night!

                                                                  I have fallen in love with Fort Collins and its progressiveness and the surrounding natural beauty. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back!

                                                                  So glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. Fort Collins is such a great place to be. Come visit again anytime.

                                                                  Clean, basic and good location

                                                                  Danny E.

                                                                  The property was well advertised, though it was a bit difficult getting into the place at night.

                                                                  Unfortunately, the downstairs neighbor had a loud argument on the first night we stayed.

                                                                  The only weakness for my liking was that the bed was uncomfortable.

                                                                  Bring soap.

                                                                  It was really nice for Laura to offer the bikes. Nice feature.

                                                                  Great town.

                                                                  Great location, good value.

                                                                  Thomas W.

                                                                  Very clean!

                                                                  Jessica A.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Very nice property

                                                                  Candi S.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Ann B.

                                                                  All was clean and well organized. However the directions to find the right apartment, such as a a landmark to find the right building. East, west was a little difficult to clarify. Maybe some name on the building, or "building next to the alley" would help.

                                                                  Could not find a matt for the master bath shower. The tub gets a little slick with soap on it.

                                                                  Otherwise, it looked great and was comfortable.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
