2016 University of Colorado Denver Master Plan
The Office of Institutional Planning has started the 2016 CU Denver Master Plan. This study will result in the first detailed, data-driven plan specifically focused on CU Denver and its future needs, priorities, and goals. Previously, CU Denver’s needs were addressed within the context of Master Plans for the Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC) campus. The master plan will serve as a framework for the future development of CU Denver, and CU South Denver, and enable both entities to realize their strategic goals.
To learn more about past planning efforts impacting the upcoming Master Plan, see the 2007 AHEC Campus Master Plan Update, 2009 CU Denver Micro Master Plan, the 2012 AHEC Auraria Campus Strategic Implementation Plan, the 2012 AHEC Master Plan Update, and the Connecting Auraria document at left using the Master Plan Materials link. Project updates and public forum information will also be available on this webpage as the master plan progresses.
North Classroom Renovation
The Office of Institutional Planning recently began the North Classroom Renovation project. North Classroom was completed in 1987 and is due for renovation. The project includes both system upgrades and the renovation of 32 classrooms. The $33 million project is expected to be completed in November of 2017. For additional project information please visit the North Classroom Renovation project page.
The Student Commons building, open in August of 2014, includes
146,000 gross square feet at the corner of Speer Boulevard and Larimer
Street. The project also included the renovation of a variety of vacated
spaces on campus. The total project budget
was $65.8M. Student Commons is the first building on the Auraria Campus
owned by the University of Colorado Denver, and houses many of the
student service operations and several departments from the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. It also includes several large lecture halls
and a Qdoba.
