Webcams at Western
Campus and Gunnison Valley
NOTE: UPGRADE COMING THIS SUMMER!
Perched atop Cupola Hill, this camera allows you to see the entire City of Gunnison and the Western campus. It also captures great view there are excellent views of the Palisades, Carbon Peak, and the San Juan Mountains including Uncompaghre Peak. This camera displays live-motion video with various presets for viewing. (... when it works ... Please forgive the Cupola Hill Cam as it's struggling to survive. We're upgrading this camera in July and look forward to sharing views of our beautiful campus with new technology.)
Mounted on the northwest corner of the Leslie J. Savage Library, his camera displays live-motion video and is user-controllable. This camera rotates nearly 340°, and we've established some commonly visited presets to give you quick one-click access to good views of Crawford Hall and the south side of the University Center.
Taylor Hall Quad
This unit is mounted on the north side of Ute Hall and provides a fixed view across the Taylor Quad. You can see the historic Savage Library across the quad in the left center of the image. The sidewalk on the right leads to the west entrance to Taylor Hall.
