Student Services

Being a law student can be challenging, but we are here to support you in any way we can.  Please feel free to contact the Student Affairs Team anytime and let us know how we can help. We are committed to helping you succeed both professionally and personally.

The tabs below list some services that may be of interest to you. In addition, all law students have access to a variety of great resources on the University of Colorado-Boulder (CU-Boulder) campus. These include:

  • Bike Program: Through CU’s bike program, you can get free help with basic bike repairs at any of the bike stations around campus. You can also rent a bike for free for two days with your student ID.
  • Rec Center:  As a student, you get free access to the CU rec centers on Main Campus and Williams Village. In addition to standard gym facilities, the Main Campus Rec Center also has fitness classes like yoga and dance, a swimming pool, an ice arena, and an indoor rock climbing wall.
  • UMC Connection Game Room: The UMC on Main Campus has the only bowling alley in Boulder, plus billiard tables, pinball, foosball, and other games. The Connection also offers food, beer, and other drinks.

Health Services

CU has adopted a policy of mandatory health insurance coverage for all CU students. The Wardenburg Health Center is an on-campus facility that provides medical and mental health services. In addition to free flu shots for all CU students, Wardenburg also offers other free or discounted services, including massages, acupuncture, and counseling. 

Services for Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities are encouraged to participate fully in campus academic, cultural, and social activities. In addition to providing support services to students with disabilities, the University is increasing accessibility to academic buildings and residence halls on campus. As the University continues to remove physical barriers, attitude barriers on campus also are being addressed. Working with Affirmative Action and Services, Disability Services is organizing a training program on disability issues for members of the University community.

Student Veterans

Colorado Law's student body has a strong community of active duty, reserve, and former members of the armed services.
 
Admissions process: 
We value the contribution that our student veterans are able to make at Colorado Law because of their life experiences and leaderships skills. Accordingly, our admissions process gives special consideration to military service, and we actively recruit applicants who are current or former members of the armed services. Our admissions page offers more information about the admissions process. 
 
Military Law Society:
Our student-run Military Law Society has a threefold mission: to provide a resource for student veterans to meet, network, and socialize; to provide service opportunities (in conjunction with the Colorado Bar Association) in the local veteran community; and to provide mentoring opportunities with local attorney veterans. In addition, the Military Law Society also serves as an information resource for students interested in JAG opportunities. More information can be found in the Military Law Society section of the Student Organizations page
 
Career Development:
Colorado Law's Career Development Office is actively engaged with JAG recruiters from each of the service branches, and sponsors a number of events each semester that are specifically designed to meet the needs of our student veterans.

International Student Services

CU’s International Student and Scholar Services in the Office of International Education is responsible for international students once they are admitted to CU-Boulder.

Discrimination and Harassment

The CU Office of Discrimination and Harassment (ODH) enforces the CU Sexual Harassment Policy and Procedures and the Policy on Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships. ODH addresses all complaints of discrimination and harassment based upon race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation including gender expression, or veteran status when the alleged harasser is an employee.
