Seyhan Dwelis Curation Facility


The Seyhan Dwelis Curation Facility is a state-approved repository located on the campus of UCCS housed in the Department of Anthropology within Centennial Hall. This facility curates and manages collections obtained during the course of archaeological investigations by the UCCS Department of Anthropology and other artifacts related to UCCS history. We also curate collections obtained from various projects by other agencies in accordance with state and federal guidelines that relate to the research interests of the Department of Anthropology faculty.

History of Facility:

The facility was established in 1998 in Dwire Hall to act as a repository for the archaeological research and collecting of the faculty of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. The Department and curation facility was temporarily moved to Ulrich House in 2006 as the University remodeled Dwire Hall and Centennial Hall. The remodel of Centennial Hall included the creation of a industry standard, professional quality curation facility with climate control and dry fire suppression system. The move to the new facility housed in Centennial Hall took place in 2010.


The collections housed in the Seyhan Dwelis Curation Facility are available to faculty, students and other qualified individuals engaged in research as well as to tribal representatives.
