Welcome to the University of Northern Colorado

Picture yourself here in Greeley, Colorado, at the University of Northern Colorado. Where the sun shines more than 300 days a year, rivers convene in the plains of the high desert, and the winters are picturesque. Where campus is big enough that it takes 15 minutes to cross, but it's small enough that you’ll still run into your friends. Where inspiring professors lead our distinctive and distinguished students in undergraduate research.

Picture yourself at UNC. Where you’ll get a truly unique education. It’s just waiting to be customized by you.

Imagine yourself at the University of Northern Colorado.

At the University of Northern Colorado, you will build your life on campus, but a big part of that life is informed by the city you will call home. Student life here on campus is surrounded by big-box retailers as well as the unique-to-Greeley shops found downtown. The arts are important to UNC, but they're equally important to the City of Greeley
