Living in Boulder

CU Campus

Boulder, Colorado is a gorgeous place to live and study. The city of Boulder is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, offering unparalleled opportunity for outdoor recreation including hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and skiing. Rocky Mountain National Park, with some of the tallest mountain peaks in the continental United States, is less than an hour's drive from Boulder.

Boulder is a college town that has the sophistication of a large city but with the benefits of a smaller community. The city is tightly integrated with the University, with many programs, lectures and events that make for an intellectually- and culturally-rich lifestyle. Boulder has a significant international population and hosts many international events throughout the year. Here is a sampling of entertainment options in Boulder.

Boulder has a mild climate year-round. Summers are warm and dry. Winters are also sunny with comfortable temperatures punctuated now and then with snowfalls.
