CSU – Pueblo relocates its Colorado Springs operations to location east of I-25 Exit 138 

PUEBLO – While Colorado State University-Pueblo has maintained operations in Colorado Springs since 1969, a move to a highly visible location near Interstate 25 will enhance the convenience and access to the University’s programs and facilities. Beginning July 1, all Colorado Springs classes will be taught in a 12-story high rise commercial building just east of I-25 off of Exit 138 at 2864 South Circle Drive, Suite 200.

According to Colorado Springs Program Manager Jon Ullman, the new location offers improved facilities and convenient access in a location that is close to Fort Carson and just 38 highway miles from CSU-Pueblo’s main campus.  CSU-Pueblo will occupy the building’s entire second floor consisting of 11,276 square feet with six classrooms, administrative offices, and a Front Range Room Conference Area, which will provide a convenient location in Colorado Springs for conferences, informational events, off-site meetings, and student and alumni events.

The new location will house a staff of four full-time employees and offer sociology and social work degree completion program and general education courses, with additional course offerings and degree completion programs expected during the coming academic year.

CSU-Pueblo has a long history in Colorado Springs that began in 1969 with classes at Ent Air Force Base, which now houses the U.S. Olympic Training Center at Union and Boulder. Colorado Springs operations were located at East Pikes Peak Avenue prior to moving in 2003 to a larger building near the Citadel Mall that offered 7,000 square feet of classroom and administrative space. CSU-Pueblo also has operated on Fort Carson since 1994.

“This new location will enhance our presence and visibility in Colorado Springs and allow us to better serve our students,” said President Lesley Di Mare. “We plan to offer more classes during the day and use the facility for academic advising, registration, and even alumni events.  We’re looking forward to bringing even more of CSU-Pueblo to the citizens of Colorado Springs.” 

Details about a ribbon cutting at the new location in September to start the fall semester will be forthcoming.
