See For Yourself!

We strongly encourage every prospective student – especially every admitted student – to visit our campus. You might want to meet a coach (please schedule directly with the athletic department), take in a campus event, or just relax and admire our beautiful mountain view. Your visit might include trying out the Block Plan and residential life by attending a class and staying in a residence hall. And we, of course, welcome your family as well.

While we do our best to accommodate drop-in visitors for information sessions and tours, we can better meet your expectations if you register in advance. We need advance notice of one week for class visits, and two weeks for an overnight stay.

Sign up here.

If you have other questions, call us at 719-389-6344 or 800-542-7214 or e-mail us at admission@coloradocollege.edu.

Parking

Cutler Hall and the Worner Center face Cascade Avenue. Parking is very limited. You may park in any designated visitor space on campus (some of which are near Cutler Hall). Please print the parking pass that is sent with your confirmation email and place it on your dash. Or, when you check in at the Admission office, we will provide a daily parking pass. Limited street parking is also available; some spaces are metered, some are not, so please check as you park. Feel free to take a look at our Visitor Parking map.

Overnight Visitors

If you arranged with us to spend the night and arrive between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., come to the Office of Admission in Cutler Hall. We’ll be expecting you and will notify your host. If you plan to arrive between 5 and 8 p.m., we’ll leave a packet of information at the Worner Center Information Desk and have your host meet you there.

Group Visits

We encourage high school groups to visit campus throughout the year! In keeping with our priority of serving high school student visitors on campus, we rarely approve requests from elementary and middle school groups due to the taxing resources needed to host an enjoyable and informative visit.

Special Group Visit Guidelines

The Block Plan necessitates a schedule that is very different from most other schools. Since most of our classes meet in the mornings, our student guides are usually unavailable because they are in class. Therefore, we are most flexible to accommodate visits on weekday afternoons.

Generally, we are not able to accommodate groups over the weekend, during campus breaks, or during Block Breaks. All high school groups will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.

Scheduling your visit

Given our small student enrollment, accommodations for group visits are limited. In general, we provide groups of around 15-30 visitors an information session and a campus tour based on tour guide and meeting space availability. Requests must be received at least three weeks prior to the desired visit date. Please note that while we no longer include lunch tickets/lunch in our cafeteria for group visits, you are welcome to bring sack lunches and utilize our campus space/quads to eat.

Please fill out this form to request a group visit.

Parking

Group buses should park in lot C1 on the east side of campus (see map below). Smaller vehicles may park in any designated visitor space on campus, some of which are near Cutler Hall. When you check in at the admission office, we will provide a daily parking pass. Limited street parking is also available; some areas are metered, some are not.
