Get Involved

There's more to university life than attending classes!

Students working on the Advocate newspaper

To help you be successful at CU Denver, we encourage students to take advantage of all of the academic resources and co-curricular learning and recreational opportunities that are available throughout the year at the university. 

You can get involved with a student organization, Campus Village Community Council, student government or the campus newspaper. Perhaps, you will choose to spend time with one of more than 70 student groups and clubs including honorary and professional organizations and faith-based groups. Participation in these groups will help you develop leadership and organizational skills that will aid you throughout your education and career.

Campus Village Involvement Opportunities

Community Council
The Campus Village Community Council is a student-run organization that acts as a government for Campus Village.  Community Council allows residents to voice their opinions and ideas in order to improve their community.  Students involved in Community Council will participate in frequent meetings, elections, and programs.  Any resident of Campus Village may join Community Council.
Become a Resident Assistant (RA)
Students who have lived in Campus Village for at least one year are eligible to apply for a Resident Assistant position.  RA's are student leaders in the Campus Village community who work to create a healthy and inclusive living and learning environment.  They support the transition to being a college student and help others to develop life skills.  RA selection occurs each Spring Semester.  Details on the application and selection process are distributed to current residents.

On-Going Events and Activities

The top priority while at the university is to get a degree…hey, it’s why you’re here…no secret there. In Student Activities, we know the journey to a degree takes a lot of work, but it should be fun too, right? We certainly think so.

Student Activities at the University of Colorado Denver seeks to provide students with opportunities to experience, learn and participate outside of the classroom. We aim to provide you, the student, with social, educational, cultural and recreational events and activities that challenge you as well as create an avenue for fun during your time on campus.
