What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Eat on campus - buy those campus dollars. You don't need to spend extra cash at Chipotle's or Chicfillet because UCCS food is always delicious. And for underclassmen, live in the special housing (Honors, Outdoor Living) because it really brings your spirits up whne you're having the bad weeks.
Georgette from Pueblo, CO
Go out and participate in the activities sponsored by housing at the beginning of the year, because they are a great way to meet almost everyone who lives on campus and create a tight-knit community. Get to know your teachers at the beginning of the semester, who are more than willing to spend extra time helping you, and take advantage of the learning centers or tutors if you're having trouble in classes.
Kimberly from Thornton, CO
If you are a communter student, arrive to class at least 15-20 minutes early (I usually arrive about 30 minutes early) because parking spaces are very limited. The parking garage usually has spaces if the lots don't (I almost always park in the garage anyway because then your car is protected from weather).

Professors are usually very approachable, so just ask them about things if you have questions or problems.
Eleanor from Colorado Springs, CO
Some tips for those that want to attend UCCS is to take a Freshmen Seminar class. I took one and later assisted the professor in teaching it. It was fun and it also helps you to get oriented to the campus better.
Scott from Peyton, CO
It would be a great idea for you to get acquainted with the campus, meet some upper/lower-division students, athletes, and teachers, and look to find you major at at a dependable & worthwhile school
Marcus from Colorado Springs, CO
1. apply early, you will have a better chance of being admitted
2. complete the fafsa, and apply for a lot of scholarships, even if you think you're not eligible.
3. write a cool application essay, it will give you a personality among all the thousands of other applicants
Steven from Colorado Springs, CO
Go into college with an open mind. College will change you no matter what, whether it is drastic or subtle. Just know that college is a learning opportunity not only for academics, but also about yourself. You learn how to live and take on your own responsibilities and you grow as a person. You make so many connections that if you ever need a favor or a reference, there is always someone around to help you out.
Hannah from Colorado Springs, CO
Make sure that if you are considering this college to go to a tour to know the college. When you go on a tour at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), make sure to take notes about the information that they give you and pay attention when their deadlines are. Also ask question even if they seem dumb but believe me it will help a lot.
Maricela from Aurora, CO
Be ready for a great ride. It's totally different from high school, and different from other schools. You'll love it!
Matthew from Colorado Springs, CO
If you plan on attending UCCS make sure that you stay in the dorms. This will help you make more friends rather than feel like an outsider.
