The Evolving Campus

Since Old Main, CU’s first building, went up in 1876, structures have mushroomed around the expanding campus. In the last 20 years alone, CU Boulder has developed 29 buildings and additions totaling nearly 4 million square feet. There’s even a building dedicated to a supercomputer. For those of you who haven’t been back to campus lately, here’s a sampling of the newcomers, plus some old friends for reference. We couldn’t fit them all!
