Student ID Cards

Every PPCC student needs a photo Student Identification Card. A properly validated Student ID enables you to use the Library, the computer lab, or other services. It also entitles you to free or reduced admission to student plays, dances, and other activities.

Obtain a Student ID your first semester at PPCC in the Student Life Center at Centennial Campus, Downtown Studio Campus, or Rampart Range Campus. This ID is good for your entire student career at Pikes Peak Community College. If your ID is lost, stolen or mutilated you may obtain a replacement ID for $10. Proof of identification is required for all new and replacement IDs (e.g., driver’s license, photo ID, military ID, etc.).

Other Photo IDs

The Student Life Office will also produce special IDs for nursing practicum students, Fitness Center members, etc. upon special arrangement. Cost is $5.00 per ID, per semester.

The Grove

The Grove, Room A-207, is our Commons area at our main Centennial campus. It features free Wi-Fi, pool tables, comfortable furniture, a big screen plasma TV, cool art, and more. Check out the recliners for a quick nap between classes. Pull up to the window counter with your laptop and log on. Gather around a large table for a quick bite or study group. In the Grove you can meet students, find friends, and hang out. It’s so great, we actually have to remind you to go to class!

So what’s up with that name? It’s true, an aspen grove is a lovely place to gather. But it’s more than that. An aspen grove is the largest living interconnected organism in the world. Its defining characteristics are longevity, a hardy nature and interconnectedness. The Grove in the Student Life Center is so named, first, because of its location in the Aspen Building, but more-so because it reflects the Student Life mission of building community by focusing on the interconnectedness of the campus community.

The Playground

The Playground, outdoors off the Grove.  This is an outdoor gathering spot on campus. It features picnic tables, goofy orange chairs that you can move around to form cluster seating, Wi-Fi, shade sails and a new solar operated table that has outlets for you to charge your electronics while you relax in the shade.
