The students of Colorado State University created the University Technology Fee in 2003 to support campus-wide technology projects and initiatives, with the goal of benefiting as many of their fellow students as possible.  The students of CSU provide fee management and project administration through the University Technology Fee Advisory Board, also known as the UTFAB.  This board is comprised of student representatives from each academic college, the Graduate School, the Undeclared Leadership Council, and the Associated Students of Colorado State University.

Funds cannot be used for expenses traditionally funded by College Charges for Technology. To ensure, appropriate distribution of funds, the University Technology Fee Advisory Board was created. The board provides guidance and advice in the implementation and application of technology at Colorado State University.
