Spur brings learning to life
for everyone

Made up of three buildings that focus on food, water, and health, the CSU Spur campus will be created by a university but will offer an education open to anyone and everyone. But Spur is more than a physical location, it’s a hub — a network — to connect people across the state, region, and world.
