University of Colorado Colorado Springs

The University of Colorado Colorado Springs is located on approximately 521 acres in northeast Colorado Springs at the foot of Austin Bluffs, a rugged natural cliff formation. The campus provides a spectacular view of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, including Pikes Peak, a 14,100-foot mountain that inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write “America the Beautiful” from its pinnacle in 1893.



The history of the University of Colorado dates back to the earliest days of Colorado and precedes the creation of the state. At its first session in 1861, the Colorado territorial legislature passed an act providing for the creation of a university in Boulder.


UCCS offers 36 Bachelor’s degrees, 19 Master’s degrees and five Doctoral programs. We offer degrees that are in demand by today’s employers, including programs in Business, Nursing, Health Sciences, Education, Public Affairs, Liberal Arts and Engineering.


Research, scholarship, and creative works are crucial activities for our faculty. Faculty members engage students and the community in their research and creative work activities providing unique opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Undergraduate students can participate in these types of activities in a variety of ways: through the Undergraduate Research Academy; through paid positions in their colleges or departments or with individual faculty; through independent study opportunities for credit; or by volunteering.

Students have the opportunity to present their scholarly activities at the Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum (CSURF) and the Mountain Lion Research Day.
