The 66,000-square-foot Roser ATLAS Center serves the CU campus with facilities for innovation in teaching and learning, multidisciplinary information technology curricula and research.

The Roser ATLAS Center

ATLAS Institute occupies most of the the Roser ATLAS Center, which includes research labs, a hacker space, virtual-reality and audio labs and the two-story, 2,700-square-foot Black Box Experimental Studio—a flexible, technologically-enhanced performance space that supports 360° HD projection, 5.1, 8.1, and 40.4 audio configurations, as well as DMX and MIDI-controlled lighting and audio systems. The Department of Cinema Studies & Moving Image Arts is located on the third floor.

The building is open to the public from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on weekdays. ATLAS students have 24/7 access, and students currently taking classes in the building can access labs after hours with the approval of their instructor. Students who are not currently taking a class in the building, or need assistance, can seek after-hours access by speaking to the front desk administrator in ATLAS 223 or by e-mailing
