The Grove

The Grove, Room A-201, is our commons area at our main Centennial campus. It features free Wi-Fi, comfortable furniture, a big screen TV, cool art, and more. 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. Please don't get too comfortable, or we might 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 Student Life's mission of fostering supportive and enduring relationships and networks.

Parking Passes and Hang-tags

Parking passes are required for parking at the Antlers Garage and Downtown Studio Campus. You can request a pass for free at Student Life in Room S234 (see office hours above). Make sure you bring your student, staff, or faculty identification. Also, if you are a student, make sure are able to show your class schedule (digitally or printed copy). Parking passes are also a useful tool to notify you in case of an emergency involving your vehicle. Students are not permitted to park in the parking lots on or near the campus.
