  • The University of Colorado at Boulder is GORGEOUS!! In many ways, I wish I had known about it and gone there.  more »
  • Kind staff at the visitors center recommended C4C a nearby food court with 12 cuisine stations, all you can eat for $15 each. 11 of us shared a huge table and had a wonderful feast.  more »
  • I live near here and have visited it many times. It is a lovely campus. Buildings of local flagstone; many large trees.  more »

  • If you didn't attend CU Boulder like "Vishnu J."'s bad review, then you can't be one to say that it's a bad school. You're probably just mad they didn't accept you. I've been to many college campuses and CU Boulder is by far the nicest one. It's one of few that kept its architecture theme throughout the entire campus, which by the way is from Tuscany. It was the best years of my life and would do it again in a heart beat. Great student government, great programs, great classes, and a few weird professors here and there.
  • I have attended CU Boulder since fall of 2014. This campus is incredible, easily the most beautiful in the state. The Hill is poppin most weekend nights, with good food and generally good vibes. Boulder is a beautiful and unique place, and I highly recommend it for the young person trying to find their way in life. That being said, this school is pretty tough to meet solid, real people at. Superficiality is incredibly real here, and honestly all of the out of staters who are given a blank check by their parents dull the experience a bit. If you are looking for a true Colorado experience (coming from a native), go to school elsewhere. Overall though, I am extremely glad that I choose to attend this school. The engineering school is very, very solid, with an abundance of great professors.
  • Attended a conference here; Great campus, staff, and facilities. We stayed in the dorm rooms and ate at the cafeteria, which was very convenient and relaxing.
  • Dear whoever it may concern, I feel absolutely crushed by reading different e-mails from the university. The admissions team lack understanding between them and especially the woman that I had a conversation with on the phone. I asked her for her good name and she replied with "have a good day" in the rudest tone I have ever heard. The school might be rated well with a decent academic record but they are extremely rude and do not know how to treat people. I hope this matter is taken seriously because it's a shame for a university of your level to treat any human in this manner. Kind regards, Will Newham.
  • Big, and fun. And they almost accept everyone. LOL

Where to stay in Boulder

You'll find most of the pricier and more luxurious accommodations in downtown Boulder, but the city offers hotel rooms suitable for every traveler's budget. Stay in the heart of the city if you want quick access to shops and restaurants, but if you're traveling on a limited budget, consider a good value inn a short walk or bicycle ride from downtown. You can also choose to stay in Denver for a wider selection of economical hotels and motels; it's just 30 minutes southeast of Boulder.
