Student Experience

Student Experience

Work hard, play hard.

Academics are only half the college experience. UCCS offers a unique environment to help you thrive both in and out of the classroom. Situated at the base of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs is the perfect combination of outdoor lifestyle and city life. Whether you're a hiker, a biker, an artist or a foodie - our city is as adaptable as it is beautiful. Your options for activities and cultural experiences are endless. And with over 300 days of sunshine each year, you can guarantee plenty of opportunities to enjoy your surroundings. 

We hope you enjoy your experience at UCCS as much as we do. Have you visited campus yet? We invite you take a tour and experience UCCS for yourself.  

Student Life
When you're not in class (or studying), UCCS offers plenty of opportunities for student life. Join a club, watch a show at the Ent Center for the Arts, attend a sporting event, get involved in student government or join a fraternity or sorority. Looking for a business club? We have those, too!

You are guaranteed to find an activity to enjoy on campus. If you want to start your own club, contact UCCS Student Life to create a UCCS experience that is unique to you.

Campus Views

UCCS sits atop the bluffs of Colorado Springs, which offers incredible and unobstructed views of Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods and downtown Colorado Springs.

The front of Dwire Hall, home of the College of Business, is made entirely of windows. Just an extra perk of studying in #UCCSBiz.

Business Events

You are here for business, after all. There are events happening every semester in the College of Business. Join us for one of our biggest events of the year: Career Networking Night, the Economic Forum and the Etiquette Dinner. Or, attend the frequent Lunch & Learns, career workshops, professional panels and networking events happening every month! Each event is designed to add more value to your degree and make you a more well-rounded business professional. 

Living On-Campus

UCCS offers student housing on-campus, which is ideal for students who want short, convenient walks to class, a place to hang out with friends and a new place to call home. Living on campus allows students to experience the full spectrum of campus life and is a great way for incoming Freshmen to become acquainted with the university and create lasting friendships along the way.
