Deep History - Modern Mission

The Historic Train Depot that sits at the core of our Colorado Springs Campus marries tradition with innovative technology.

Built in 1906, the Depot is home to the beautiful Harvey House – a line of lunch counters along the stops of the Atchison, Topeka and Sante Fe rail line. Harvey Girls served up appetizing delights to the countless travelers who walked the halls of this stunning piece of history.

Today, the Historic Train Depot serves as home to a number of business tenants, public/private partnership programs, executive offices and several meeting spaces – available for private reservation.


The unique ecosystem of public/private partnering at Catalyst Campus has allowed for the creation and curation of many class-leading programs – from the Campus facilitated Catalyst to the Air Force Platform One Dev Ops, and the Microsoft Software and Systems Academy, just to name a few. Check out the many more programs that call Catalyst Campus home.


While many individual companies and organizations call Catalyst Campus home, it is the synergy and connectivity that exists among this community that is wholly unique to Catalyst Campus. Approval for tenancy on Campus isn’t just about filling space, but about bringing together the right players that make up a sum greater than the parts.

Meetings & Events

Catalyst Campus, our tenants, and programs all host a number of in-person and virtual events throughout the year. Additionally, the Campus has several meeting and event spaces available for third-party reservation. These range from small huddle rooms to the magnificent Harvey House – appropriate for anything from small meetings to elegant receptions!

Growing Our Presence

Campus Expansion

As public/private partnerships lead to a greater volume of programs, start-up businesses and R&D activities, Catalyst Campus will provide facilities and capabilities to scale with that need.

Catalyst Campus currently plans to expand our footprint through new construction offering additional executive office suites, research and development laboratories and residential offerings, in addition to an extension of the brand beyond Colorado.
