  • I really enjoyed the programs offered to students here. The staff are very caring and the campus is so beautiful. I love how many events we have availible as well as different student organizations. I am sad that I have to transfer to a different school in AZ because I had to move but I will always be a buff at heart.
  • Im a freshman here in the Leeds Business School and I am having the time of my life. Amazing academic content, faculty, and resources. Not to mention the amazing culture and people. Lots of fun.
  • Beatiful campus, courteous staff, and an awesome city! We visited CU and walked around the campus just to admire how massive the campus was. Tucked in the mountains of CO, the campus alone feels like a small town rather than a school. We checked out an art exhibit, rode some bikes, saw some football practice, and took in the outdoors lifestyles of the locals. Room for improvement: A more guided visitors guide outside and within the campus.
  • UCB UNIQUELY AND COOPERATIVELY MET MY NEEDS FOR 11 YEARS. HALF MY COURSES COULD HAVE BEEN TAUGHT ON LINE. I EMPLOYED WORK STUDY. GOT GREAT VALUE. NO DEBT.
  • 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.

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.
