Abstract: We compute the structure of the cohomology ring for the quantized enveloping algebra (quantum group) $ U_q$ associated to a finite-dimensional simple complex Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{g}$. We show that the cohomology ring is generated as an exterior algebra by homogeneous elements in the same odd degrees as those that generate the cohomology ring for the Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{g}$. Partial results are also obtained for the cohomology rings of the non-restricted quantum groups obtained from $ U_q$ by specializing the parameter $ q$ to a non-zero value $ \varepsilon \in \mathbb{C}$.
