There are a lot of different ways to be a part of the CU Collegiate Recovery Community and get involved. Our doors are open to all who are in recovery, living a sober lifestyle or seeking support, and to allies of the recovery community. We offer a safe, sober space on campus and welcome the community that gathers here.

Student Lounge

The CUCRC Student Lounge is open for socializing, studying and meetups Mon-Fri during open hours and for evening and weekend study hours, meeting or events as listed on the CUCRC Schedule. If you are new to sobriety or recovery, this is a good way to meet and connect with other sober students -- the CUCRC is a home away from home for many of our members.

Meetings and Support Groups

Go to the CUCRC Weekly Schedule for a description of recovery meetings and groups that currently meet in the CUCRC space. The Center is available for reservation and open to all support needs, paths of recovery and fellowships. The space can accommodate meetings up to 30 people. If you are interested in holding a group or recovery meeting in the CUCRC, contact us at or call 303-492-9642 to discuss options.
