The CU campus is probably one of the most beautifully located schools in the US. The campus is located at the foothill of the Flatiron Rocky Mountains. The campus buildings blend in so great to the environment, all with the Spanish tile roofs. The buildings overall are very well kept and the school is continually renovating and building new facilities.... More

Big, nice campus. I checked out Folsom Field and the surrounding buildings first and they were very nice and clean. Huge campus, you probably can't see it all in one day.

The CU campus is a gorgeous red stone campus that is a beautiful place to walk. It is close to the flatirons with beautiful views. There are on campus museums, activity centers, places to dine and some fun tours (Banjo Billies) that give insight to some of the famous former students now celebrities and interesting stories about the campus.

Can't say enough about the beauty, the friendly atmosphere, and oh! those mountains! The maps are missing the scale -- it takes 20 - 30 minutes to walk across a swath of campus. Finding the buildings you want can be a challenge since they are not named by function. No "student center" or similarly named building here! The PDF map... More

Visited Boulder for the day, so we stopped by the University of Colorado while we were there. The campus is beautiful!! Breathtaking mountain views, lovely buildings and surroundings. It is also right by a park (forgot the name) where you can go hiking and have AMAZING views of the mountains. The campus is only a 30-40 minute drive from downtown... More

I've walked this campus twice and was blown away by its beauty. The Flatiron Mountains are always in the backdrop and plenty of green space to throw a frisbee or lie in the sun. I never studied there so I cannot rate the professors or education you'll receive. Boulder Creek is down the street where people swim, kayak, tube and... More
