About the Mountain Campus

Mountain Campus exists to serve the Colorado State University community and the surrounding region for academic field studies, educationally focused conferences, K-12 programming and mountain research. The campus is open from Mid-May to Mid-October. 


We provide a unique and outstanding living and learning experience and natural resource base for a diverse blend of instruction, research, conferences and programs with an academic or educational focus.


Serve as the region’s premiere high elevation educational facility and provide a platform for cutting edge research and scholarly endeavors.  

In 2017, CSU Housing and Dining Services partnered with CSU Facilities Management and Warner College of Natural Resources to update the vision for the 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.
