The CSU Campus at the National Western Center

While this year’s National Western Stock Show takes place in its traditional North Denver location, there are exciting changes in the works, through a partnership with the City and County of Denver, Colorado State University, Western Stock Show Association, Denver Museum of Nature & Science and History Colorado. The National Western Center will reimagine the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum into an active year-round destination serving the local community and lead, inspire, create, and entertain in pursuit of global food solutions.

The CSU Campus at the National Western Center is scheduled to break ground in 2020 and open in 2021 – providing a centralized statewide research hub tackling the most pressing global issues and an educational space open to all. The CSU presence at the National Western Center will focus on health, water, energy, food, and the environment in three key facilities:

  • CSU Water Building
  • CSU Animal Health Complex
  • CSU Center for Food and Agriculture

Programming and community opportunities at the CSU NWC Campus will include:

  • K-12 and family educational opportunities
  • Continuing education and Master’s programs
  • Workforce development
  • Summer camps for kids
  • Teacher training
  • Community and industry kitchen
  • Research in action
