CSU Spur is working to reach full capacity of programming throughout 2022; please note that not all programming is currently available every day.

Come see meow it’s going at Vida!

Vida is Spanish for life. To live is to be connected — to people, to community, to animals. The Vida building embodies this connectivity between human and animal life, as well as the connectivity of the Spur campus to the diverse cultures and Latinx ties within the surrounding neighborhoods of Globeville and Elyria-Swansea.
