Housing (room and board)
Housing with room and board will be provided at the Campus Village on the downtown Denver campus. CoSIBS students will be housed in double rooms with private bathrooms, WiFi access, and HD television. Students will eat breakfast and dinner at the Campus Village. Lunch will be provided at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus to allow for lunchtime seminars and group activities.
The UCD Campus Village is located adjacent to the University of Colorado downtown Denver campus. The Village has full dining facilities, a fitness center, a computer lab, outdoor recreational facilities, a game room, and a cyber cafe. Students will commute from the Campus Village to the Anschutz Medical Campus via the free inter-campus shuttle, which offers round-trip service during normal business hours once every hour. The CoSIBS daily schedule will accommodate commuting time on the campus shuttle.
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 other centers for statistical research in the greater Denver area. These include the BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and the COPD Genetic Epidemiology project.
CoSIBS students will also have easy access to 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.
