Location and Directory

A multi-location institution, CCU operates one residential/commuter campus in Lakewood for traditional undergraduate students, and seven Colorado regional centers for adult undergraduate and graduate students, with overlap at our Lakewood campus.  Our regional centers include Colorado Springs and Grand Junction.  CCU also operates partner sites and satellite sites in various locations such as Peterson AFB, Schriever AFB, Buckley AFB, and the United States Air Force Academy.  In addition, CCU’s Global Online Center for Adult Undergraduate and Graduate Studies serves students around the globe.

Located in the southwest suburbs of Denver, the Lakewood campus provides a quiet setting for undergraduate and graduate classrooms, faculty offices, the library, music facilities, the gymnasium, the student center, and student apartments. Lush lawns, trees, and a private lake add to the beauty of the campus.

The Lakewood campus includes fully equipped science and computer labs, a bookstore, a dining commons, an events center, and a student center. The Music Center contains a performance hall, a music and art computer lab, a keyboard lab, music classrooms, and practice rooms, with a separate facility for recording. Resident single students live in two-and three-bedroom apartments or townhouses. The gymnasium offers facilities for exercise, basketball and volleyball, concerts, and other activities. Since 2015, the University has dedicated four new facilities - providing much-needed academic classrooms, student housing, and meeting spaces. The Armstrong Center, a 60,000-square-foot facility that will serve as the academic and spiritual cornerstone for the Lakewood campus, will be the fifth and most ambitious facility to date, housing the School of Music, an expanded library, a 500-seat performance auditorium, and the University’s first-ever dedicated chapel. Future plans also include the construction of a new Science Center, dedicated to the training of leaders in the fields of science and engineering.

Denver, Colorado, and the Rocky Mountains provide a variety of recreational opportunities: skiing, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, sightseeing, biking, tennis, and golf. The city boasts a full complement of professional sports teams, including the MLB’s Colorado Rockies, the NFL’s Denver Broncos, the NBA’s Denver Nuggets, the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, and the MLS’s Colorado Rapids. The symphony, theaters, museums, and universities make Denver the cultural hub of the Rocky Mountains and one of America’s great cities. Students attending classes on the Lakewood campus come for a university education and receive Colorado as a bonus.

CCU’s adult undergraduate degree and graduate degree programs are designed specifically for busy, working adults.  Taking courses at a location close to work and home, or completely online, helps students balance family, work, church, and school commitments. Students focus on one course at a time while typically attending class just one night a week at on-site locations. Online students complete coursework at times and locations that are most convenient for them. CCU’s aggressive transfer credit policy combined with credit for life learning experience, credit by exam, and accelerated course schedules, offers students the shortest path to their diploma.  All of these features enable students to succeed in earning their degree and achieving their career and personal goals.
