After Hours Access

CMU Montrose Campus students now have access to 24-hour study lounge and computer lab

CMU Montrose Campus students now have a quiet place all their own to study in after hours. Students on the Montrose campus asked the Associated Student Government for help to create a 24-hour student lounge, and that need has been met. Students can access the Buell Higher Education Center computer lab and study area with their MAVcard as needed, no matter the hour.  

"The idea for an after-hour study lounge was born by the students through their ASG representative Kaydee Lucero and now they have a place to study and use the university resources at night,” said Montrose Campus Director Steve Metheny. 

Prior to the opening of the lounge, student access to campus resources were limited. At night, if students needed to use the Wi-Fi, they had to get creative. Now they can study, get with classmates or simply socialize long after the buildings are shut down for the night. 

"The Associated Student Government of Colorado Mesa University helps students at all three CMU campuses to achieve the best learning environment possible. Our Montrose and Western Colorado Community College Senators help create actionable solutions to ensure students at CMU Montrose and WCCC have the resources they need to succeed," said ASG President Jay Shearrow.  

Shearrow and his team work closely with staff and administers on the Montrose Campus to ensure student needs are met and that they have representation in student government.
