Living in the UCCS Community

We admit living in Colorado is pretty fantastic.  We have legendary snow and 300 days of sunshine; mild summers and vibrant falls; big cities and small mountain towns; sand dunes and raging rapids.  And whether you stay close to campus or explore the whole state, there’s always something to do.

Over the past five years, UCCS has seen tremendous growth. Dwire Hall is renovated for our Business, Languages, and Criminal Justice students; there is a new Campus Recreation Center; expanded learning facilities for Biology and Engineering students; a new Gallogly Events Center for Mountain Lion athletic games and events; and a renovated and rededicated Centennial Hall for Chemistry, Anthropology, and Geography and Environmental Studies students. Our students use some of the newest laboratories in the state. We've also created new spaces on campus for students to spend time relaxing, reading or enjoying moments with friends.

At UCCS, college doesn’t just happen in the classroom.  It happens at a Mountain Lions game, a Theatreworks production, a yoga class at the Rec Center, or over a sandwich at Clyde’s. We know a campus alive and buzzing with activities is just as important as books, writing papers, and study time.
