Fort Collins, which has been home to CSU since the University’s inception in 1870, is a vibrant, friendly city of 161,000 tucked against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Northern Colorado, just 60 miles from Denver. The city boasts a lively arts and cultural scene, shopping in historic Old Town, a strong economy, and is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. With more than 200 miles of bike paths and trails, easy access to the scenic Poudre River and majestic Rocky Mountain National Park, and within easy driving distance of Colorado’s iconic ski areas, it is a year-round paradise. Boasting a mild climate, thriving high-tech industry, and some of the best microbreweries in the world, it’s no wonder Fort Collins annually ranks among the most livable small cities in the United States.
