One of the many benefits of visiting a college town is getting to enjoy all the activities it has to offer. Whether you're up for a game of tennis, a few sets of bowling or a trip through the cosmos, you will likely find something to suit your mood.

Rec Center

Over 300,000 square feet of recreation space available to conference guests with the purchase of a daily or weekly pass. Includes fitness equipment, basketball, tennis and racquetball courts, climbing wall, swimming pools and ice rink.


Outdoor green spaces, sand volleyball courts and sports fields are available for informal group activities or just for some Frisbee and Colorado sunshine. You can rarely beat the weather in Boulder and we have plenty of places to enjoy it.

Performing Arts

Concerts, plays and film series occur throughout the year, and summer includes both indoor and outdoor performances. Information and schedule of events can be found on the Attractions and Performances page.

Fiske Planetarium

Your chance to take in a star talk, fulldome film, concert or even a laser show. Fiske offers a huge screen, dazzling visuals and a fantastic sound system. Visit the planetarium website for details.

The Connection

Located at the University Memorial Center (UMC), The Connection offers bowling, billiards and games to the campus community, including conference guests! You can grab some snacks, bowl, play some games (including XBOX One, PS4, Wii), enjoy pinball, foosball or just catch the latest sporting event on TV.

Around Boulder

If you'd like to wander a bit farther afield off campus and into Boulder, you can find additional information on the Boulder, Colorado website. There is no shortage of excellent restaurants, local tours, hiking trails and shopping opportunities to take advantage of.
