General Information

The University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS), located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, was established in 1965. It was built on the grounds of the Cragmor Sanitarium, which its executive director sold to the University of Colorado for $1 in 1964. Between 1965 and 1972, it operated as a branch campus of CU Boulder; it was recognized as an independent district campus in 1974. It was largely known as a commuter school until the first on-campus student housing opened in 1996. It merged with the Beth-El College of Nursing in 1997. Today, UCCS offers about 45 undergraduate degrees, 23 graduate degrees, and 5 doctoral degrees and counting in its six colleges and schools: the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences; the College of Business; the College of Education; the College of Engineering and Applied Science; the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences; and the School of Public Affairs.

UCCS enrolls more than 12,500 students and counting each year. The school colors are black and gold, and its athletic nickname is the mountain lions.
