Liniger Building at the University of Colorado South Denver
The Liniger gift builds on the collaboration that began in April when the Linigers teamed with CU, converting 11,000-square-feet of the 151,000-square-foot facility to classroom and lab space. CU began offering classes there in August, while the popular Douglas County wildlife art and natural history museum continued most of its museum services to the community.

The first classes at the facility are being offered by CU Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. CU’s Boulder and Colorado Springs campuses are expected to add programs in the future. CU Denver will manage the facility on behalf of the system. Academic departments now using the facility include business, education and human development, engineering and applied science, liberal arts and sciences, nursing and public health.

The nursing school operates a simulation lab where students can interact with robotic patients.
