Located in Fort Collins, the crossroads where the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains, CSU is an awe-inspiring conference and event site. Our beautiful campus provides a serious educational aura found only at a university, while the surrounding area beckons visitors with an outstanding variety of opportunities for recreation and relaxation.

Fort Collins has been named by Money magazine as one of the best places to live in America. Fort Collins is approximately 50 minutes northwest of Denver International Airport (DIA). At the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Fort Collins is the key to major recreation areas such as Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Red Feather Lakes, and the Cache La Poudre River.

If you choose to host your event at Colorado State University, you will not be disappointed! We encourage participants to bring their families to Fort Collins to experience an affordable foothills destination with a college town feeling and active community. With over 300 days of sunshine per year the Fort Collins area offers diverse recreational resources including boating, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, camping, and wildlife watching, as well as the vast amount of night and day time activities available steps away from campus.
