Boulder, Colorado is a must see if you are visiting the Denver area. The University is a quick 45 minute drive from Denver and is one of the most beautiful campuses in the U.S. The Flat Irons make the setting picturesque, and all of the campus buildings are made out of sandstone with red tile roofs which remind me a...

I accompnaied my spouse to a conference held on CU-Boulder grounds. I spent time investigating the campus (it was rather quiet - the week after graduation). There are many areas to visit - the bookstore and Glenn Miller display (in the University Center), Old Main (oldest building on campus - houses a museum), Macky Center (concerts), many other buildings housing...

My daughter is hoping to do her post-grad here, so we visited briefly while on a visit to explore Boulder. It is a beautiful, bustling campus, and she felt right at home. We were there during graduation weekend, so there were tons of people around. We loved the surrounding views and that is is so close to all things Boulder.... More

My school, love getting back here. Beautiful settings, great places to explore, eat and hang out. Only regret this trip is it's not football season. Games at Folsom are so enjoyable so next trip will be for at least one home game.

CU Boulder is a beautiful campus! And what made my visit more wonderful was that there was fresh snow covering the campus. And regardless of how thick and fluffy it was, it still showed the beautiful architecture of each building. I thought that the campus banners were pretty clever -- Be Together. Be Different. Be "Boulder". Old Main has a... More

We were able to find free street parking as we arrived after 5:00 but there are lots and garages easily accessible. The buildings have beautiful local stone and there are neat little quads and fountains and archways here and there, along with statues suitable for selfies .Go Buffs!

The campus is beautiful, especially in sunny days. You can walk around, eat something at the University Memorial Center or simply sit down and admire the view. Norlin Library is marvelous!

I always visit area campus' when traveling. CU was wonderful. Visitor parking was easy to find-with fair prices. The campus is very walkable from one end to another. Football stadium is fantastic-and located right on center campus (very rare). All of the buildings blend in beautifully with the surrounding mountains. As a bonus, be sure to head over to the...

CU Boulder is beautiful! I would recommend wandering around campus and taking in the breathtaking scenery. Don't forget your camera to capture the views as well.
