    Great bang for buck. Most of the younger crowd either drops out or transfers by the end of the fall semester leaving a barren wasteland in the dorms. Good professors are hard to find here as well, though they do exist. Highly conservative campus, the staff consistently preaches right sided values. ...Continue reading

    UCCS is a great school if you are looking to go into Engineering, Business, Computer Science, and Nursing. There is no consistency for classes, the class depends solely on the professor and they usually they do not grade your work until after the drop date so you never know the fairness of grading until its too late... ...Continue reading

    I transferred here from UTSA after moving to Manitou Springs from San Antonio. The school only has a few professors that are worth their salt. Most others wouldn't be able to teach at many other universities. Get in, get your degree, and move on. That said, it is very flexible if you are a non-traditional looking to complete your degree. ...Continue reading

    UCCS is an ok school if you're looking for an experience akin to high school. The classes are easily scheduled so that you can come to campus and then leave once you are finished for the day.

    I am an adult student in Colorado Springs, and this is my 4th university. It seems that the money goes to the campus grounds rather than getting better teachers. Construction never stops. Parking costs way too much, and campus stretches long not wide so lots of walking or taking the ever tardy shuttles unless you have a car. People are not friendly here, internet is slow and bad. Never really closes for safety of students. Hit and miss here. Rethink option. Overpriced. ...Continue reading

    The food is not bad but still has a long way to go, and also there is a disproportionate amount of vegan food to the amount of people who are actually vegan, by that I mean there's way too much vegan food. Even near the buildings there is someone always smoking in what seems right next to the door. ...Continue reading

    People are crazy here. Horrible food as there is only one dining area that does a terrible job. IT is terrible denying there are ever problems and refusing to help with most problems.

    Definitely plan on making your own food. The prices for parking permits are unreasonably high. About $400 for a semester of parking that does not even guarantee you a spot.

    pretty decent, if you're looking to go to school to learn something rather than to party it up These guys will accept anybody that applies and it may hurt the credibility of the school in the future. Other than that, I can't complain. We have our own 'University Village' for goodness sakes. The library is grand and one of the best University libraries I've been to. The campus is still small, but growing, and thus AUC (always under construction). However, if you can get past that, it can make for a well-rounded college experience. ...Continue reading

    Nice campus, a lot of stuff is closed on the weekends but not everything. Nothing to do on campus and the food services are terrible so plan on bringing meals. Parking sucks so you''ll have to plan on arriving at the parking lots at least 30-45 before your class starts. Overall a good school if you are not living on campus. I have a lot of friendly debates with friends and I've learned just as much from my classmates as I have my proffesors ...Continue reading

    First off, UCCS is in a prime convinient location. Endless construction. Some key courses close early, especially with popular professors. On-campus social scene is spare.

    If you have a physical disability good luck getting around campus, there are many steep hills and the push buttons rarely work. So many students live off campus, making this school subpar when it comes to social life, which is fine as long as you don't care about it. I came to UCCS only caring about education and not that much about social stuff. The library here is fantastic! The parking here sucks, but is conveniently located in the city. ...Continue reading

The campus is beautiful and the location is incredible. Great teachers and oppertunities to meet new people. I highly recommend this school to everyone! ...Continue reading

    Great liberal campus. It is is extremely fast growing, so there are some growing pains, but it has a lot of potential to be an amazing school. The food isn't all that great, but there is a shopping center down the road with Noodles, Chipotle, and more though. The parking situation isn't great, but they are currently constructing more places for the future. Over all a great campus that is growing every year. ...Continue reading

A lot of the clubs seem to be inactive but there are many social events offered (I just work too much to attend). Still very commuter-friendly. ...Continue reading

    Horrible parking and most of your peers are in their mid 30's. The people are pretty good, for the most part, and there are a lot of top notch professors. But there are also quite a few not-so-great ones, the food is sub-par, and it's overcrowded. It needs to expand quite a bit before it'll be as nice as Boulder, but it's trying. The Springs is also a nice town. ...Continue reading

    This school definitely doesn't get enough credit! The weeder classes are extremely difficult and you will be lucky to pass with a C.

    Very well respected school, but for some reason I always here people complaining about being depressed here. I am disappointed in my experience here. It seems like the science teachers are rejects from Boulder. The UTeach program is amazing! The nursing program's admission requirements are too strict. The food options are terrible. It takes 15 minutes to walk across campus. ...Continue reading

    Beautiful campus however the constuction and growth rate is kinda a bummer right now. Located off the freeway, getting around town, running errands, or traveling in Colorado in general is very convenient. Plenty of ways for any student to get involved on campus (highly recommended). Parking is very limited. Housing is decent, recommend renting a shared house for cost reasons. The financial aid office works with you! They helped me get so much money. The campus overlooks garden of the gods and the mountains. It's gorgeous. There are many resources such as LGBT, counseling and academic assistance centers. ...Continue reading

Once you meet friends and get busy with school its a very great school with some amazing teachers. ...Continue reading

    I'm a freshman this year and I love it! I went to the Denver branch for a while and I have to say the difference in comfort was astounding. I couldn't believe how much more relaxed and prepared I feel here. Don't regret transferring at all! ...Continue reading

    Very well respected school, but for some reason I always here people complaining about being depressed here. I am disappointed in my experience here. It seems like the science teachers are rejects from Boulder. The UTeach program is amazing! The nursing program's admission requirements are too strict. The food options are terrible. It takes 15 minutes to walk across campus. ...Continue reading

    Beautiful campus however the constuction and growth rate is kinda a bummer right now. Located off the freeway, getting around town, running errands, or traveling in Colorado in general is very convenient. Plenty of ways for any student to get involved on campus (highly recommended). Parking is very limited. Housing is decent, recommend renting a shared house for cost reasons. The financial aid office works with you! They helped me get so much money. The campus overlooks garden of the gods and the mountains. It's gorgeous. There are many resources such as LGBT, counseling and academic assistance centers. ...Continue reading

The Roaring Fork Cafeteria is wonderful and food they make is really impressive especially for a college campus. Once you meet friends and get busy with school its a very great school with some amazing teachers. ...Continue reading

    Amazing campus. GORGEOUS. The mountain air in the morning is great! Lots of opportunities & I would say common areas are pretty nice: we have access to everything we need to excel. My only complaint is that for a campus that says they champion health and green living, its hard to walk outside without a cigarette blown in your face--even near doors. ...Continue reading

    Great teacher, she really knows her stuff and is super approachable. If you don't understand something she's completely willing to explain it further and if you ask her to go back to a slide she will. She wants you to pass. ...Continue reading
