University of Northern Colorado
Founded in 1889 and tucked between the Rocky Mountains and Colorado’s stunning high plains, UNC is a public doctoral research university committed to the success of its 13,000 students, with more than 100 undergraduate programs and 120 graduate programs. The university’s just-right size, expert faculty, and tradition of research and hands-on learning gives students exceptional opportunities and a personalized education.
Our alumni often say the connections they made with faculty made a huge difference not only when they were at UNC, but long after, as they traveled their career and life paths. That partnership and community is something we take great pride in – a university culture that is welcoming, collaborative, supportive and committed to student success, service and education.
Our students are diverse and hard-working, and there’s no one “label” that defines them. More than one-third of UNC undergraduates are the first in their family to go to college and more than one-quarter are eligible for federal need-based financial aid. Of all UNC students, more than one-quarter identify as students of color.
There's a lot that makes life at UNC great. From sporting events to campus arts and other amenities—not to mention everything else Greeley and Colorado have in store for us—you're sure to find plenty of opportunities that will make you feel right at home. No matter what your fitness goals or interests are—from yoga to weight lifting—you’ll have access to an incredible recreation facility, as well as resources and trainers who can help you be fit, healthy and at the top of your game.
