The Roser ATLAS Building


The heart of the ATLAS Institute is the 66,000-square-foot, $31 million Roser ATLAS building. It serves the CU campus with facilities for innovation in teaching and learning, multidisciplinary information technology curricula and research.  Through exhibition and performance facilities and distance learning capabilities, the Roser ATLAS building draws our community into the networked information age.

The ATLAS Building Includes:

• A flexibly-scheduled student design and student project space, a student commons, and shared computer editing and graphics facilities.

• Performance and production studios that support multidisciplinary teaching and creative work in the creative and performing arts including Art, Dance, Film, Journalism, Music and Theater.

• A 150-seat, distance-learning equipped auditorium, a 75-seat film screening room, a lobby featuring a video wall, and Pekoe café.
