Getting to Know CTU’s Aurora and Colorado Springs Campuses
With CTU’s online degree offerings, students have the ability to view lectures, discuss topics with lecturers and fellow students, and complete assignments from anywhere with an internet connection. But if you’re looking for a more traditional classroom setting, CTU also has two ground campuses in Colorado Springs, CO and Aurora, CO. Both locations offer an innovative and intimate learning environment where you can work directly with faculty, enjoy small class sizes and get hands on experience with the latest technology. Our campuses also offer onsite job fairs with local employers.
Colorado Springs and Aurora are conveniently located along the Front Range of the Southern Rocky Mountain Regions of Colorado. Our Colorado campuses cater to students who need a little extra flexibility to account for a busy work schedule but who also appreciate the value of one-on-one interaction to the academic process. At both locations, students will find a combination of in-class and online instruction. Want to know more about our two campuses? Here’s a quick overview.
