The Hive

Due to the Chancellor's statement about COVID-19 and campus gatherings, ALTEC spaces will not be available for use beginning on Monday, March 16 through the remainder of the spring semester.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility as we do our part to simultaneously protect the health of our communities and continue providing excellent services, resources and support to the campus. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions.


The Hub for Innovation + Vibrant Expression (the HIVE, Hellems 159) is a social hub for CU Boulder's language learning and teaching community. Our intention is to promote languages and cultural-related gathering through events and exhibitions led and/or facilitated by the Anderson Language and Technology Center (ALTEC) throughout the year. We envision the HIVE to be a space that encourages collaboration across disciplines and fosters inclusivity and diversity.

Stop by for a cup of coffee or tea, visit our featured exhibit, browse our language learning and teaching resources, join a language conversation table or check the Language Corner, a language exchange board to facilitate conversations in more than 30 languages between fluent/ native-speakers and those who want to improve their language skills in any of the languages offered.

Check out what's happening in the HIVE. You are welcome!
