UCCS Downtown uses a variety of technology and room layouts to create unique learning, meeting and collaboration spaces. There are three unique areas in the room which each provide a different function for various needs of end users. All spaces use a wireless presentation device, a Dell touch screen monitor with a built-in PC, and an easy to use touch screen to control each system programmed by UCCS OIT Staff.

A collaboration space is available which allows students to collaborate on tasks before, after and between classes.
