Life at CU Denver

Life as a CU Denver Lynx is about seeing the possibilities—and being brave enough to follow your instincts. In the heart of the city, opportunities surround you. For employment and enjoyment, Denver offers more to do than anywhere else in the state.

Concerts at the Pepsi Center. Shows at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Games at Mile High Stadium. Trips down the 16th Street Mall. Many of the best things to see and do in the city are only steps (or a light rail stop) away from our campus.

To get the most out of studying and living downtown, eligible students can choose to live in student housing at Lynx Crossing or in our new first-year student housing at City Heights, which opens in fall 2021.

Whether you live on campus or off, you can easily connect with other students. Whatever your interests are, we want you to do what you love. We will help you discover new interests, too. There are more than 120 student groups and clubs to join, and dozens of club sports and intramural teams. All CU Denver students can use our Student Wellness Center and its services to stay happy and healthy.
