International Students

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) welcomes over 1500 international students—from over 80 different countries—to CU-Boulder every year. If you are an international student, visit the website or stop by for help with visa questions or for suggestions (including English as a second language assistance and information on international student clubs) on how to get the most out of your stay in the United States. ISSS is a part of the Office of International Education.  |  Center for Community S355


For many students, a job is a necessity. Many CU-Boulder students work at least part time to help meet their school expenses. If you are looking for a job, check the student employment website.  |  Regents Administrative Center


MyCUinfo, CU-Boulder’s secure web portal, is your personal gateway to most of the online services that you need as a CU-Boulder student. Within MyCUinfo you will find everything from registration, to financial aid and billing, to news and announcements.

Off-Campus Student Services

This office supports the 22,000 students who live off campus. It maintains contact information for several apartment complexes and property management companies in the area. Students can use Ralphie’s List, CU’s rental database, to search hundreds of available units, find roommates, and post sublets. In addition, an attorney is available for free lease reviews and general legal advice.  |  UMC 313  |   303-492-7053


Ombuds Office

Students visit the Ombuds Office in C4C for a variety of reasons. Issues range from conflicts with roommates, to feelings of being treated unfairly by a professor or administrative office. We help students identify options for their CU-related problem or conflict, in confidence and at no cost. Call or stop by to make an appointment to see an ombuds for assistance.  |  Center for Community N440  |  303-492-5077


New student orientation occurs each January and summer for entering first-year and transfer students. Depending on your college or school, a variety of programs and sessions are available. During orientation, students receive information about advising, registering for courses, taking advantage of campus resources, and making positive contributions to our diverse and dynamic community of CU-Boulder Buffs.


Parking on Campus

If you plan to park frequently on campus, consider buying a parking permit. A lot will be assigned according to your living arrangement. Permits must be purchased online or in person at Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) and a pick-up location is announced for each semester. Campus parking meters are intended for short-term use. Maps of campus lots may be picked up at PTS or viewed on their website. PTS offers many options for university vehicles, the Buff Bus shuttle, the faculty/staff Eco Pass, and car share programs.


CU-Boulder is home to one of the oldest and largest recycling programs in the nation. Look for recycling containers in and around every campus building where you can recycle co-mingled containers, office paper, newspapers and their inserts, magazines, catalogs and phonebooks, and corrugated cardboard. CU Recycling is a partnership between CUSG, Facilities Management, and Housing & Dining Services.

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is against the law. It is specifically prohibited on campus and in the university community. The university’s definition of sexual assault encompasses sexual contact, sexual intrusion, and sexual penetration without consent. Acquaintance rape accounts for the majority of rapes committed, and includes situations in which a person is without the physical or mental capacity to consent (often due to being under the influence of alcohol or other drugs). Violators can be arrested, charged with a crime, and may face university discipline.
