Founded in 1971, Metropolitan State University was envisioned as an institution without walls, serving the community where students worked and lived. Since that time, the university has expanded its physical footprint in four primary locations and more than 20 instructional sites while remaining true to the spirit of its founders.
The Student Life and Leadership Development Office serves as a complement to the academic mission of the university and enhances the overall educational experience of students through the development of social, cultural, intellectual, recreational and governance programs.

Building Services Office is committed to creating and supporting healthy and productive environments in which to work and learn.
