Amenities & Perks

At Mountainaire (formally known as Kensington Apartments), our newly-renovated apartments redefine student living. From in-unit washer-dryers and hardwood-style flooring to stainless steel appliances and private patios, we’ve crafted amenities that go beyond the ordinary. 

Imagine unwinding in our indoor swimming pool, hitting the books in our academic study lounges, or hosting a barbecue on our outdoor patio with amazing views of the mountains and flatirons. This is Mountainaire – where exceptional features and convenience meet in the heart of Boulder, creating an elevated living experience that stands out from the rest.

Overall, a great experience living in Kensington (Mountainaire) so far. The property manager did a great job ensuring any issues with the infrastructure I had were resolved in a prompt manner.

I recommend this apartment complex to anyone associated with CU or anyone seeking the combination of the great location near the campus, coupled with spacious rooms and recent renovations. Could be an ideal choice for those seeking convenient and comfortable living.

With a fantastic location near the university and great staff, I’ve been satisfied with my time living here. The complex is located within walking distance of a shopping center, the Bound and Stampede bus lines, and a couple BCycle stations. Just outside that area is the 29th Street Mall, the University, and a connection to the Boulder Creek Trail…those at the front desk are great!
