With views of the Rocky Mountains to the west and the Denver skyline to the east, life downtown and on the Auraria Campus feels
pretty grand. Both sights remind us that big things are possible. No matter what direction you want to go, CU Denver offers everything you need to achieve your goals.
For nearly 50 years, CU Denver’s location in downtown has been home to students from Colorado and all over the world. They come here for a global education in one of the best places to live. From Larimer Square and the 16th Street Mall
to Mile High Stadium and the Pepsi Center, many of Denver’s best destinations are our campus’ closest neighbors.
With access to everything the city has to offer, it’s no wonder that two-thirds of our graduates decide to stay in Colorado.
If you're new to Colorado–or even born and raised here–there's something for you to discover in Denver. Explore everything the Mile High City offers.
