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.
