UCCS earned multiple nods in the 2022 Best of the Springs edition of the Colorado Springs Gazette, notably earning two top awards from the publication.
UCCS walked away with two Gold designations, with an additional Bronze and Silver designation for Theatreworks. The awards are as follows:
- College for Bachelor’s or Master’s: Gold ranking
- Continuing Education: Gold ranking
- Theater Company (Theatreworks): Bronze ranking

Voters commented on the quality of education students receive, noting the personal attention and as well as the university’s location.
“UCCS is the largest university campus in Colorado south of Denver,” said one voter, “and one that truly offers students a chance to know their professors and get involved in their own special area of interest.” Another simply wrote, “Wonderful local university.”
The Best of the Springs edition ranks businesses, nonprofits, schools and more into Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners based on votes cast by readers and residents of the Colorado Springs community.
