Winter buffaloDear Forever Buffs, 

In 2008, the University of Colorado Boulder launched the Forever Buffs initiative, which eliminated annual membership dues for all alumni. This means that all CU Boulder alumni have access to the Alumni Association's benefits including career services, the award-winning Coloradan magazine, events, discounts and more! It's membership benefits without membership dues.

We hope that the Forever Buffs initiative makes it easy for you reconnect or increase your involvement with the university and that you will celebrate your CU pride with us!

Go Buffs!

Our Mission

The University of Colorado Boulder Alumni Association seeks to design, develop and execute innovative strategies to significantly increase the involvement of current and future alumni with the university.

Our History

The Alumni Association was established by CU graduates on June 4, 1882, the afternoon after the university’s first commencement. These first alumni recognized the need for an ongoing involvement with the university. Today, the association serves more than 280,000 students and alumni worldwide. We publish the quarterly Coloradan magazine and numerous online communications, produce academic and social programming, fund scholarships and host local, regional and international events throughout the year.

Your Home

The next time you're in Boulder or on campus, be sure to visit your Alumni Association. Our home, the Koenig Alumni Center, is your home. Koenig was built in 1884 as the home of the university president and was dedicated as the Alumni Center in 1968. The historic building is located at 1202 University Avenue in Boulder at the corner of Broadway and University. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
