UCCS is proud to call Colorado Springs home. Now the 39th largest and most desirable city to live in the United States, Colorado Springs arose from a humble but meaningful beginning in 1871. Now through July 31, 2021 the Colorado Springs community will embark on a communitywide celebration of our city’s rich history, a celebration in which UCCS will take part.
