Housing (room and board)
Housing with room and board will be provided through conference services at the University of Colorado at Denver (UC Denver). CoSIBS students will be housed in double rooms (each room includes two twin beds) with private bathrooms and a shared common space. Students will receive a food stipend, the rooms include basic cooking appliances. Housing is located in downtown Denver, and students will commute by light rail to the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The CoSIBS program will provide light rail passes to use for commuting and other transport around the Denver region. The CoSIBS daily schedule will accommodate commuting by light rail.
CoSIBS will use the new (completed in 2007) purpose-build state-of-the-art educational buildings on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The facilities provide lecture halls, classrooms, small group meeting rooms, computer labs, and student community space. Students will have sessions in one of the five computer-lab classrooms.
The Anschutz Medical Campus is a completely new education, research and patient care facility and the largest academic health center between Chicago or Dallas and the West Coast. We are located in the heart of the Rocky Mountain region with a state-of-the-art campus that houses nationally-recognized education programs, internationally renowned research, and a clinical care zone with the University of Colorado Hospital and the Children's Hospital, which are the University of Colorado School of Medicine's primary adult and pediatric hospital partners.
CoSIBS field trips are planned to local recreational areas and to other centers for statistical research in the greater Denver area.
The residential halls at UC Denver are a short light rail ride to the recreational opportunities in downtown Denver, which include Coors Field (home of the Colorado Rockies baseball team), walking and biking paths along the South Platte River and Cherry Creek, as well as the Denver Art Museum and numerous private galleries in the area.
