Finding Hotels
We recommend that students consider the cost of temporary housing in hotels or hostels as part of their budget planning. This is particularly important for students who have not made housing arrangements before arrival.

  • Students in the downtown Denver area may wish to consider the following hotels: The Marriott or the Ramada
  • Students in the Aurora area may wish to consult the AMC Hotel handout.
  • You can also consult the Denver Chamber of Commerce to find more hotels in the greater Denver area.
