College of Communities

Front Range Community College’s service area is vast, stretching from North Denver to the Wyoming border, and including all or portions of Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Larimer, Jefferson, and Weld counties. With three campuses and one center serving more than 28,000 students, FRCC is the largest community college in Colorado.

FRCC offers programs and courses at its local campuses based on the needs of the students and communities served by those sites. Though many offerings are available at multiple sites, each campus provides a unique instructional mix and learning environment for its students. Student services are open to all students. Hours may vary and a few specialized services may require a visit to one of the larger campuses.

Boulder County: Located near the intersection of Hover Road and the Diagonal (Hwy. 119) in southwest Longmont, this campus serves students throughout Boulder County. With a sensational view of the Colorado Rockies to entice students, this campus specializes in general education and technology offerings, reaching out to students of other colleges and universities who need State Guaranteed General Education courses, and to students seeking to transfer to the University of Colorado and other four-year schools.
