Did you know?
The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus includes TWO campuses? The Denver Campus in downtown and the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. The Office of Institutional Planning works on behalf of BOTH campuses, providing capital and facility planning, planning and design project management, space management and transition management expertise.
University of Colorado
CU Denver educates more than 14,000 students each year in over 800,000sf of building space.
330,000sf of this building space belongs to the university, while 550,000sf is part of AHEC (Auraria Higher Education Campus), which is shared with two other institutions.
In 2013, the university’s Office of Institutional Planning and Facilities teams will add a new academic and student support building. Academic Building 1 will include over 146,000sf and will provide a much-needed connection between CU Denver’s presence on the Auraria Campus and downtown. This building will be at least LEED gold certified and will include an open-air café, high-tech teaching and learning tools, and a “front door” to CU Denver leading into the downtown corridor.

Anschutz Medical Campus
CU Anschutz educates nearly 4,000 students each year, provides over 15,000 jobs, and includes over 1.5 million patient visits to the on-campus University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado.
The Anschutz Medical Campus also includes over 1,067,000sf of research space! This is more than half of the campus’ 2,045,000sf of building space.
The Anschutz Medical Campus is growing quickly, with over 18 new buildings in the last 10 years. The campus is currently working on a master plan that will detail future growth strategies.
