CCU Neighborhood

Welcome, CCU Neighbors!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest news, updates, and exciting events happening at Colorado Christian University’s Lakewood campus. We’re so glad you’re here!

Whether you live close to campus or in the neighboring Lakewood communities, we hope you will discover the information you need, along with new ways to enjoy all that CCU has to offer! Check back often for the latest construction updates and community service activities, as well as sporting events, music and theater performances, and family-friendly festivities to add to your calendar.

For over 50 years, Lakewood has been home to our College of Undergraduate Studies campus, where the majority of our traditional undergraduate students reside. A leader in higher education, CCU is consistently ranked in the top 2% of colleges nationwide for its core curriculum by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni and is the premier interdenominational Christian college in Colorado and the eight-state Rocky Mountain region. We also rank nationally as an NCAA Division II university in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC).

But perhaps the biggest distinction that sets CCU apart from nearly every other college campus is our students. Set with the charge to impact the world with grace and truth, our students voluntarily live by a lifestyle covenant that ensures a family-friendly environment, both on campus and in the surrounding neighborhood. Our campus is alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free, and all students actively volunteer in the community throughout their college careers.

We invite you to discover the CCU difference for yourself!
