Located at the base of the beautiful San Juan Mountains, the Montrose Campus of Colorado Mesa University provides access to a variety of associate and bachelor degree programs in a scenic, smaller community campus setting. Established in 1991, the Montrose Campus of Colorado Mesa University is situated in the heart of the beautiful Uncompahgre Valley on Colorado's Western Slope. In this small mountain town, students can enjoy a campus life that includes small class sizes and a personal, hands-on learning environment.
Blessed with incredible weather, and an even more incredible setting, Montrose is also a gateway to some of the best year round recreation in the west.
Western Colorado Community College (WCCC)
Western Colorado Community College is very much a community. It's a community of students who share the same goal - to improve the quality of their jobs, their careers and their lives.
WCCC is the open admission, community college division of Colorado Mesa University. Students can live in the Colorado Mesa University residence halls while taking classes at WCCC. However, whether they live on campus or not, WCCC students may take advantage of the many services and resources provided by the University including the Tomlinson Library, the Maverick Center and all other recreational facilities.
In addition to the 86-acre main campus in the heart of Grand Junction, Colorado, CMU students study at the Montrose Campus — about an hour away — and at the Tilman M. Bishop Campus in Grand Junction that’s home to CMU’s two-year division, Western Colorado Community College.
CMU offers three styles of residence halls to suit your needs.
Piñon, Rait and Tolman Halls are the traditional halls on campus and each house 200 residents. Garfield Hall, a new traditional-style residence hall, was completed in fall 2013. Traditional hall rooms are carpeted and furnished with stationary beds, closets, desks and chairs. Most second- and third-floor rooms have balconies. Traditional hall rooms share a newly renovated common bathroom. Halls include study lounges, laundry rooms and vending machines. A student-staffed front desk is also provided for your security and convenience.
Monument, Bunting, Grand Mesa and North Avenue are suite-style halls, each housing varying numbers of beds/students. Most rooms are suite-style with multiple bedrooms sharing bathrooms and a furnished common living area with a 32” flat-screen LCD TV. Suites offer a mix of double, single and super-single bedrooms. All rooms are furnished with carpet and moveable furniture including beds, closets, desks and chairs. Laundry rooms, computer labs, vending machines and a student-staffed front desk complement living areas.
North Avenue, Walnut Ridge and Orchard Avenue Apartments offer the convenience of both on- and off-campus life. Separate kitchen, living area and bathroom, along with double and single bedrooms, give students the chance to experience “off-campus” living right here on the Colorado Mesa University campus. Because each apartment contains a fully appointed kitchen, meal plans are optional. All apartments are furnished with moveable furniture including a kitchen table and chairs, desks, desk chairs, single beds, couch, love seat, end table and coffee table. Apartments are not available to first-time entering students
