About CU & Our Services

Boulder is one of Colorado's most bustling cities, so it's no surprise that students flock there to receive a world-class education. The university's setting offers the benefits of picturesque mountain views with the learning and career opportunities offered by proximity to a major city. Students can easily reach downtown Denver or Rocky Mountain National Park within a short drive. In the immediate area, there is a mix of trails through the Flatirons for those who want an outdoorsy experience. For shopping, dining, and entertainment, students can visit Pearl Street Mall and other popular areas in downtown Boulder, which is only one mile from CU-Boulder's campus.

Over 30,000 degree-seeking students are enrolled at CU-Boulder, making it one of the largest colleges in the state. The college offers more than 3,600 courses in 150 fields of study and boasts the number one four-year graduation rate among all Colorado public universities. A number of hands-on research and leadership opportunities are available for students. Meanwhile, enrichment programs make it possible for undergrads to explore their interests beyond the classroom through study abroad, service-learning and other programs.

CU-Boulder's campus and the surrounding community have helped Boulder achieve the title of the number one college town in America. With more than 450 student clubs and organizations, countless community service projects, and many sporting events, students are never at a loss for things to do on campus.
