Location and Directions

CUPLV is located in ECCS 121 in the Computer Science wing (ECCS) of the Engineering Center at 1111 Engineering Drive, Boulder, CO 80309 or the southwest corner of Colorado Avenue and Regent Drive.

The main entrance of the Engineering Center is on the west side. From this entrance, the Computer Science wing (ECCS) is found by going right and following signs, and the Office Tower (ECOT) elevators are immediately to your left. Alternatively, from the South Entrance (with the South Café), the Computer Science wing (ECCS) is to directly to your left, and the Office Tower (ECOT) elevators are found by roughly going straight (right and then immediately left to go down a hall towards the West Entrance).

Visitor parking is accessed by turning left from US-36 on to Colorado and then the first left on to Regent Drive. Parking with permit is the first left from Regent Drive, and hourly parking is the second left.


Fly into Denver International Airport (DEN). Boulder is about 45 minutes from the airport by car.

To get from the airport, here are some options:

If you drive from the airport, there is a north/toll route (E-470 to Northwest Parkway to US-36) or a south/free route along (I-70 to I-270 to US-36). You should definitely take the toll route during morning/evening rush hours.

Getting around Boulder by bus is quite easy. RTD is the transit system in the Denver-Boulder area, and there are express buses between Denver and Boulder (the Flatiron Flyer routes). You would get off at Broadway and Regent or Broadway and Euclid and then walk 10-15 minutes across campus to the Engineering Center. Get bus directions using Google Maps or the Transit app.


Hotel Boulderado. 2115 13th St, Boulder, CO 80302. The Hotel Boulderado is historical, nice, and in an excellent location for restaurants and shops; it is about 1.5 miles or 20-30 minutes walking to the department.

Millennium Harvest House. 1345 28th St, Boulder, CO 80302. The Millennium Harvest is very convenient to the department (almost right next to it).

Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast. 2151 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder, CO 80302. The Briar Rose is a bed and breakfast that is about halfway between downtown and the department.

Chautauqua. 900 Baseline Rd, Boulder, CO 80302. Chautauqua is a set of cottages and lodges that are more rustic. The draw is that the location is right on open space where a bunch of hiking trails start. It is about 1.5 miles or 20-30 minutes walking to the department, though there is a significant hill.

Best Western Plus Boulder Inn. 770 28th St, Boulder, CO 80303. The Best Western Plus Boulder Inn is a nice option that is 0.6 miles or 10-15 minute walk from the department, but there's not as much next to it (e.g., restaurants).

Boulder Marriott. 2660 Canyon Boulevard, Boulder, CO 80302. The Boulder Marriott is 1.0 miles or 15-20 minutes walking to the department. There are some places to eat nearby, but the location is not as nice as downtown.

The downtown area of Boulder is a really nice area with the Pearl Street pedestrian mall, lots of restaurants, farmer's market, etc. And it's about a 5 minute drive/20 minute bus ride/30 minute walk from the department. It's roughly centered around Pearl St and Broadway St.


Some of Evan's favorite restaurants.

Amu. Non-sushi Japanese. A small, cozy restaurant with not many spaces: just a bar and a tea room. On the expensive side.

Pizzeria Locale. Neopolitan-style pizza.
