Campus Perimeter Tour

University Club

On the corner of Baseline and 27th Way is a large buffalo sculpted by Jim Dolan of Montana and donated by Boulder businessman Bauldie Moschetti, owner of commercial properties near the sculpture.

Continue on the Broadway bike path past Regent Administrative Center and the University Administrative Center and you’ll come to the University Club, one of the finest examples of Tuscan vernacular architecture on campus. This faculty club had only been open a few years when World War II broke out. From 1942 to 1944 it was used for a Navy foreign language program. After the war it became a dormitory for women.

In 1956 it was restored to its original function and renamed the University Club. Legend has it that architect Charles Klauder, creator of CU’s Tuscan vernacular style, collapsed and died in 1938 while finishing plans for the University Club on his drafting table. Local architect Glenn Huntington saw the building through to completion.
