Other Campus Locations

In addition to the 90-acre main campus in the heart of Grand Junction, Colorado, CMU students study at the Montrose Campus — about an hour away — and at the Tilman M. Bishop Campus in Grand Junction that’s home to CMU’s two-year division, Western Colorado Community College.

Montrose Campus
Located at the base of the beautiful San Juan Mountains, the Montrose Campus of Colorado Mesa University provides access to a variety of associate and bachelor degree programs in a scenic, smaller community campus setting. Established in 1991, the Montrose Campus of Colorado Mesa University is situated in the heart of the beautiful Uncompahgre Valley on Colorado's Western Slope. In this small mountain town, students can enjoy a campus life that includes small class sizes and a personal, hands-on learning environment.

Blessed with incredible weather, and an even more incredible setting, Montrose is also a gateway to some of the best year round recreation in the west. For more information, call 970.249.7009 or visit


Western Colorado Community College (WCCC)
Western Colorado Community College is very much a community. It's a community of students who share the same goal - to improve the quality of their jobs, their careers and their lives.

WCCC is the open admission, community college division of Colorado Mesa University. Students can live in the Colorado Mesa University residence halls while taking classes at WCCC. However, whether they live on campus or not, WCCC students may take advantage of the many services and resources provided by the University including the Tomlinson Library, the Maverick Center and all other recreational facilities.
