Here is a summary of Colorado’s most affordable college towns.  Colorado offers some of the best university towns in the world – but what makes a college town stand out?  Colorado has so many great things to offer in the livability index, but where college towns are concerned, there is much to consider.  College tuition and textbooks are only one part of the equation in determining total college costs.  The cost of living on and off-campus is a huge factor in determining affordability.
