Montrose campus adds new building

CMU has purchased a new building for its campus in Montrose. The acquisition is the result of a partnership with the City of Montrose.

“On behalf of the City of Montrose, I would like to say thank you to Colorado Mesa University for working with our community to meet the needs of Montrose area students. We are excited about the recent partnership created between the city and CMU to expand our campus and we know that this relationship will benefit area residents for years to come,” said Bill Bell, Montrose City Manager.

The university purchased a 3,200-square-foot, two-story building at 245 S. Cascade Avenue, across the street from the CMU Montrose Campus for $400,000. The City of Montrose committed to paying $50,000 toward the purchase this year.

About one-third of the building is currently occupied by Edward D. Jones & Co. The financial advisor will remain at that location. The remainder of the building will be used for student support services and will include a student lounge that will also serve as an area for tutoring, a room for student clubs and organizations to meet as well as a second meeting room. There will also be offices for student advising, career services, testing and financial aid.

“The CMU Montrose Campus is a critical access point for students to earn a higher education in western Colorado,” said President Tim Foster. “Our partnership with the City of Montrose, Montrose County and other key partners enabled us to purchase this building, which will dramatically boost our efforts to serve students.” •
