Fort Lewis College is located in Southwest Colorado at the crossroads of the Rocky Mountains and the desert southwest. It is an area of diverse alpine, desert, and red-rock canyon environments offering world-class biking, kayaking, climbing, skiing, and hiking. At 6850 feet, the campus overlooks historic Durango and the rugged San Juan Mountains. Recently named one of Outside magazine's "Best Outside Towns" list and one of the "best adventure towns to live and play in" by National Geographic Adventure magazine, Durango is an active, thriving community with a small town atmosphere. The historic downtown offers a variety of shops, restaurants, galleries, and the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The regional airport, served by four major airlines, is just 20 minutes from downtown.
Campus Location - Durango is located in Southwest Colorado at the foot of the San Juan Mountains, 20 miles north of the Colorado-New Mexico border at the crossroads of US highways 160 and 550.
Helpful Information - Students wanting to attend Fort Lewis College MUST BE VERY FLEXIBLE WITH THEIR CLASS CHOICE. Adventure Education classes can be difficult to register into because of the strict requirements. Students must come with flexible academic needs and not "require" a specific class in order to do the exchange. We will try to help you with your registration requests, but we are unable to guarantee that you will be able to register into specific courses.
