Sitting on the northwest corner of South College Avenue and West Prospect Road, the 161,200-sf, four-story building stands as a prominent new gateway to the campus, while consolidating the University’s health care services into one location. The building also houses a University of Colorado Health walk-in clinic, the Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center, and an occupational health services clinic alongside a full service pharmacy on the first floor, all of which are open to the general public. In addition, the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging has space in the facility for research, education, and outreach.
The new medical center provides one-stop, state-of-the-art healthcare services for students by bringing the CSU Health Network’s medical and counseling services under one roof for the first time, replacing the former aging facilities. Additional services offered in the facility include physical therapy, psychiatry, optometry, immunizations, travel medicine, an allergy and asthma clinic, a women’s clinic, a dental clinic, counseling services, and student health education and prevention programs.

Many of the spaces utilized high-end finishes, including wood paneled curved walls with LED lighting in the reflection space; terrazzo stairs and glass railings on the central spiral staircase; and selective placement of floor finishes and ceiling elements to improve wayfinding. Abundant daylighting was requested by the owner and was achieved by terminating the main hallways at floor to ceiling glass windows, which also created small reflection nooks throughout the building.
“I believe that the building illustrates the vision beyond what just words could capture. I love to bring people to see the Center. This new building will allow us to grow, collaborate and achieve for years to come.
In short… this has been an incredible experience beginning to end. I have nothing but the highest regard for the AP/BWG team.”
Anne Hudgens, Executive Director of the CSU Health Network
