GETTING TO COLORADO SPRINGS

For Fall 2017 Arrival day for:

Global Scholars Program is Monday, July 17, 2017

All other New Students and Exchange Visitors is Tuesday, August 15, 2017

We will provide an airport pick up service for those students that arrive at the Colorado Springs (COS) airport on Arrival Day.  If you plan to arrive in the U.S. prior to your designated Arrival Day, you are responsible for finding transportation to Colorado College and lodging while in the U.S.  To request transportation from the Colorado Springs airport to Colorado College on Arrival Day, you must complete the required International Student Arrival Form

Please submit your flight details to us no later than August 1, 2017 (July 1, 2017 for Global Scholars Program participants).

By Plane to Colorado Springs:  If you will be flying to Colorado, we recommend that you fly directly into Colorado Springs (COS).  Newly arriving international students will be met by a CC representative and be able to take a CC-sponsored transportation shuttle from the Colorado Springs airport to the CC campus on arrival day. 

By Plane to Denver:  If you will be arriving in Denver and cannot take a flight to Colorado Springs, you will need to take an airport shuttle to Colorado Springs.

  • Colorado Springs Shuttle offers direct shuttle service between Denver International airport (DIA) and the Colorado College campus every day of the year.  Reservations are recommended to ensure you have a seat.  Check out www.coloradoshuttle.com or call 1-877-587-3456 for details on arrival times and bus stops.  A one-way ticket will cost about $50.00 USD.
  • Front Range Shuttle offers direct shuttle service between Denver International airport (DIA) and the Colorado College campus 6 times a day.  They also offer Executive SUV service and Private/Charter van services.  Reservations are recommended.  Check out www.frontrangeshuttle.com or call (719) 237-2646 for details.  A one-way ticket will cost about $50.00 USD. 

Please Note: When making a reservation through either shuttle company, you can request in the "Special Instructions or Requests" section for Colorado Springs Shuttle or the "Other Information" section for Front Range Shuttle to be dropped off at Colorado College, instead of one of the regularly scheduled drop-off locations.  If you request to be dropped off at Colorado College, both shuttle companies will drop you off on campus in front of the Boettcher Health Center (building #23 on the campus map) and a CC representative will meet you there to guide you to your residence hall.

A Note on Transportation: Greyhound Bus offers bus service between downtown Denver to downtown Colorado Springs.  You will need to take a taxi or public bus from Denver International airport to the downtown Denver Greyhound/TNM&O Bus station (about a half hour ride). The bus ride from Denver to Colorado Springs takes approximately two hours and the cost is $17.00 one way (depending on the time of day).  Visit www.greyhound.com for departure times and more information.  RTD provides public bus services from DIA to downtown Denver. Although less expensive than shuttle service, it may be more difficult to navigate the transfer from DIA to the downtown Denver bus station with your luggage.  You will also need to take a taxi from the downtown Colorado Springs bus station to the CC campus.
