Visitor Guide

University of Northern Colorado 2015-2016

Welcome to UNC

Explore the University of Northern Colorado and our community.

In 1889, this university was founded on principles that are reflected in students, faculty and alumni over 125 years — rigorous education, community engagement and lifelong connections. Here, you’ll also find a vibrant community where you can get involved and make a difference.

UNC is a comprehensive baccalaureate and graduate research university committed to academic integrity and excellence, with a focus on critical thinking, communication, problem solving, leadership and technological applications. Undergraduate and graduate students are challenged in the classroom with coursework and research; encouraged and inspired by engaged faculty; and offered the opportunity to make a difference to the local and global communities, all of which enriches and deepens their educational experience.

Buildings and facilities range in architecture from stately turn-of-the century classics to high-tech state-of-the-art green facilities. We invite you to come tour our residence halls and classrooms as well as explore Greeley and the Rocky Mountain region.

Explore Greeley and the Rocky Mountain region. It’s a friendly and welcoming community where recreation, art and culture offer limitless options for enriching your education and your college experience. Celebrate your college experience, and show your Bear Pride each fall with a homecoming celebration complete with Spirit Week and Community Fest.
