You can also find an apartment’s maximum income to qualify when it’s available on our Now Renting page.
Minimum Monthly Income to Qualify
Households are required to earn a minimum gross monthly income of two times the rent (unless using a Housing Choice Voucher) to qualify for a Boulder Affordable Rental.
How Much is Rent?
Rents are set at rates that are lower than typical market rate rents in Boulder. Rent amounts are shown with each available listing and will stay the same each month throughout the term of the lease.
Ranges of Rent:
- Studio: $614 – $1,228
- 1 Bdrm: $658 – $1,316
- 2 Bdrm: $789 – $1,579
- 3 Bdrm: $912– $1,824
- 4 Bdrm: $1,017 – $2,035
Why is there a range of rent per bedroom size?
Rents at some apartment communities may be available at a lower rate for households who qualify with a lower amount of income. There are a set number of apartments available at different rates so we cannot guarantee an apartment home will be available at a lower amount.
Additional Qualification Criteria:
- Student, liquid asset, and homeownership restrictions apply.
- Applicants and household members must be free of evictions within the past three years and be able to provide two years of satisfactory rental history from a third party. If unable to provide rental history, an increased security deposit may be required.
- All applicants will be required to pass a criminal background check.

A link to pre-qualify will appear with each rental when an apartment becomes available. Applications are not accepted ahead of time.
