21st Century Construction and Modernization

The face of campus changed again at the beginning of the 21st century with construction of the Western Ridge Housing Complex, which offers apartment-style living for upper-division students and completion of the Russell T. Tutt Science Center; as well as the revitalization of the east campus, now home to the Greek Quad and several “theme” houses.

The Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center opened in 2008, as an interdisciplinary arts building allowing for innovative, experimental, and collaborative projects in a unique space with state-of-the-art technology.

In the spring of 2013, Colorado College completed the addition of the Adam F. Press Fitness Center, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the health of the CC community. The renovations to the El Pomar Sports Center and the addition of the Adam F. Press Fitness Center will meet the needs of students and faculty for years to come.

Intended to open by the fall of 2017, Colorado College’s adds a 39,000 square feet addition to the library. With this addition, the library will modernize the campus as well as be more accommodating to CC's Block Plan. The books and other library materials will now be accompanied by a café, seminar rooms, study spaces and classrooms.

An addition of new apartments, small houses, and a community space on the East side of campus will be available for use by the beginning of the 17-18 academic school year. The East Campus Housing Project will be home to 154 students within a housing community that provides various housing formats. The space is designed to intentionally create the feeling of a close-knit neighborhood, while allowing connections to the rest of the CC campus.
