It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to campus for the new academic year.

As the University of Colorado Boulder welcomes new and returning students to campus this summer and fall, campus leaders encourage students to keep safety in mind whether they are new to Boulder or returning for another school year.
Although CU-Boulder is a very safe place, unfortunate things can happen. Make smart choices regarding your personal safety and educate yourself so you can safely enjoy the natural environment of Boulder and the surrounding foothills and mountains.
Architect Charles Klauder, who set the campus aesthetic in the early 1900s with the design of several buildings, once said, "Many an old grad has reflected that students may come and go, classes enter and graduate, but that venerable walls and carved chimney-pieces, picturesque gables and vaulted archways endure forever."
CU-Boulder has made major progress this summer in its compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, specifically in programs for students with visual impairments. In addition to fixing technical problems, the campus will also strengthen the awareness of all members of our campus community about how to access new technologies and create a culture in which everyone benefits by continual improvement of accessibility.
The primary residence hall move-in days for Fall 2014 will be Monday, Aug. 18 and Thursday, Aug. 21. To support Housing and Dining Services new move-in system, staging areas for new residents will be set up in several parking lots across campus. Students will park in these staging areas prior to moving to their “Quick Drop Zones” located at their residence halls for unloading.
In order to accommodate the activity on Aug. 21, parking permit holders in several lots must be temporarily relocated. If your permitted lot will be affected, you will receive a permit holder email with maps detailing alternate parking arrangements.
