Welcome to SEEC

SEEC Café Spring Break Closure

The SEEC Café will closed Monday, March 26th through Friday, March 30th.

Normal operating hours will resume on Monday, April 2nd.

Located on the University of Colorado’s East Campus in Boulder, the university’s new Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC) brings together more than a dozen programs and industry partners under one roof. SEEC is home to some of the best minds in environmental and sustainability research at CU and in federal labs.

A new, LEED-certified building houses shared labs featuring a new generation of analytical instruments and synthesis capabilities not available elsewhere on CU’s campus. An adjoining 290,000 square-foot space has been refurbished for teaching, programs, collaborative work, and community connections. The complex is designed to generate interaction and collaboration, fostering chance encounters that can generate sparks of discovery.
