Welcome to the home of the Bears.
Let us show you what UNC is all about.

Why Students Choose UNC​ Why Students
Choose UNC​

Academic Reputation

UNC has more than 100 undergraduate and more than 100 graduate programs. Best of all, students at all levels complete research and get real-world experience.


For residents and nonresidents alike, UNC is one of the most affordable four-year institutions in the state of Colorado. So your degree value-to- cost ratio is high.


With just over 12,200 students total, you’ll see your friends regularly, but you won’t know everyone on campus. Some say it’s the perfect size.

Bear Voices​

Hear from UNC students about the classes that changed their lives (or at least made the early mornings and hours of homework worth it!).

"Small business counseling because it was very hands on. We got to work with a real business and then write a new business plan for them."

Ben Grodsky

"Foundation and Praxis of Higher Education and Student Affairs. [...] The class just opened my eyes to a world that you don’t really know exists until you get to college."

Mallory Gibson

"Either blood stain pattern analysis or criminal profiling [...] and now when I watch criminal minds I can solve the crimes!"

Taylor Archibald

"History of Rock and Roll with Frank Cook. I learned so much, and Frank made it fun."

Brianon Burke

For Success​

When your professors get to know you, they’re able to help you build bridges throughout your career. Which means that when you graduate, you’ll be prepared and confident.

Bears in
the Wild​

Because our faculty are committed to both research and teaching, students get the best of both worlds: professors with up-to-the-minute knowledge who bring students along in the field, lab, classroom and more. Here, you’ll see some of our students and faculty at work, both on campus and around Colorado.
