Map of campus

High Altitude Precautions:
Colorado Springs is 6,035 feet above sea level.  Adjustment to a major change in altitude can take several days. To help make your stay more comfortable, drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids, use sunscreen and lip protection and take frequent rests. Average barometer reading is about 610 mm Hg so not much air to filter out those UV rays. Humidity will be about 50% so you will dry out quickly.

Nearby Points of Interest

Garden of the Gods - A Registered National Natural Landmark. On Tuesday afternoon, AAPM Summer School buses will depart from campus after lunch. No charge for the Tuesday bus trip, and park admission is free. Check back for the bus schedule.

Pike's Peak - Allow at least two hours to drive the 38-mile round trip to the summit. Consider the the Pike's Peak Cog Railway (brochure in .pdf). Please note: At 14,110 feet above sea level, a trip to Pike's Peak is not recommended If you have a history of severe cardiac or respiratory problems. Babies under 4 months of age should not make the ascent either.

Special Services

ADA Accessibility
