Here you will find information pages on major capital construction projects on campus, as well as a complete list of all construction projects in progress on campus. 

Current construction hotspots on and near campus include:

Conference Center Hotel at Broadway and University: Construction has begun for the on campus Limelight Hotel Boulder. The project website includes renderings and FAQs, and will provide ongoing updates on construction.
