Educating More Coloradans Than Any Other University.
The Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC) Campus is the largest college campus in the state of Colorado, with over 45,000 students. Uniquely situated, the AHEC Campus hosts three separate institutions, the Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU), the University of Colorado Denver (UCD) and the Community College of Denver (CCD). These three separate institutions coexist by sharing classroom space, general services, and a variety of other facilities.
Funded by all three institutions, Campus Recreation at Auraria (CRA) is a shared comprehensive fitness, recreational, and leisure service provided to students, staff, faculty, alumni and the community. Campus Recreation at Auraria operates the Physical Education/Events Center, which includes a pool, fitness center, racquetball, squash and basketball courts, a dance studio, and more. CRA strives to support the missions, values, and goals of the Auraria Campus institutions by providing high quality, innovative and accessible wellness and recreational opportunities that foster lifelong personal, academic and professional success for its diverse campus community.
