Checking in and out can be performed and coordinated at any location on campus for the convenience of the guests and will be planned during the reservation process.
Due to the fact that Western does not charge for parking, parking is on a first come first serve basis. There are parking lots surrounding the majority of campus buildings and all of the lodging facilities located on campus with more than ample space for our visitors.
Damage to the property, including but not limited to rooms, fixtures, furnishings or linens, will result in an additional charge of fair replacement value or necessary cleaning.
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed on Western’s campus, of course with the exception of service animals.
Smoking & Alcohol
Colorado State Law prohibits smoking in all of Westerns buildings, this includes cigarettes, e-cigarettes and marijuana in any form. Western is also compliant with federal government policies and allows consumption of alcohol beverages by guests that are 21 years of age and older and in possession of a valid driver’s license or passport.
Western Colorado University is dedicated to accommodating all guests with disabilities.
The mission of Western Campus Security Services is to help provide a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
