Colfax at Auraria has two side platforms that have a fence between the two tracks making passengers cross the tracks at either end of the station. The station is on the north side of Colfax Avenue as the light rail tracks start curving away from that street. The stations fits between 9th Street a through street that intersects Colfax and 10 Street which dead ends before the station giving way to an unsignaled pedestrian crossing. The Northbound platform is basically a very wide sidewalk, the southbound platform feels like a real platform nestled along side the technology building. For platform furniture each platform has the standard ADA mini-high platform with a small canopy. As well as a much larger canopy closer to the center of the platform. This is where the station's TVMs are found.
