Nestled in a beautiful, secluded mountain valley at an elevation of 9,000 ft. (2,743m) lies Colorado State University's 1,600-acre Mountain Campus. As a site for student learning, conferences, workshops, meetings, and retreats, the Mountain Campus offers a unique opportunity to leave the hectic pace of urban life behind and be immersed in the natural world of the Rocky Mountains.

The Mountain Campus exists to serve the Colorado State University community and the surrounding region for academic field studies, educationally focused conferences and mountain research. The campus is open from Mid-May to Mid-October.


CSU Housing and Dining Services has partnered with CSU Facilities and Warner College of Natural Resources to update the vision for CSU’s Mountain Campus. The vision outlines goals for enhancing management, programming, and facilities at the Mountain Campus while maintaining its unique character and important aspects of the student experience there.
