In 1931, Ute Hall became only the second building and the first residence hall built on Western’s campus. This coed space has room for 132 students. Honors Program students have the option to live in Ute Hall.
Land Acknowledgement – Ute Tribe
Indigenous peoples have lived, prayed, loved, laughed and raised children in the Gunnison and Uncompahgre country. The Utes and their many distinct bands are primary among many groups who historically had ties to this land.
Western Colorado University humbly acknowledges the sacred sites, hunting and gathering grounds, spiritually important mountains, botanical resources, special buttes and other places of significance for the Indigenous peoples.
Members of the Western community hereby express respect for the Utes and their ongoing connections to this land.
