  • Nothing special at all about this campus. Not architecturally interesting at all. Skip it unless you HAVE to go there.  more »
  • Beautiful campus! Huge arena! It was not hard to find our way inside the arena. We were here for a graduation and it was wonderful. Parking is plentiful.  more »
  • This college shouldn't have been shuttered! A haven for women, not within t he boundaries of traditional students, but non-traditional students who saw the CWC as a haven!  more »

  • I can only speak about the Daniels College of Business. I enjoyed the time I was there and the faculty and staff are great! Worth the tuition.
  • This university was hosting me as an intern. I got to met a lot of professors and interact with graduates. The atmosphere was pleasant, but I did feel alone because it was rare to find another Native American on campus, on my own. Luckily, the program I was with worked with the multi cultural center at DU who put me in contact with the few Native American students on campus. Mind you though that this was during the summer so, I could be wrong to assume that there are few Native students. I stayed in an apartment on campus and found it pretty nice. There was someone on my floor who would smoke pot every other day so the place smelled and there was a couple across from me who would loudly argue and slam doors that woke me up. However, I made the decision to not let these bother me and ruin my time here. When I did this, I began enjoy myself, met new people, and explore. There are a good amount of local pubs and restaurants close to the campus, just a walk away. I highly recommend the Jerusalem Restaurant and Pete's! Another thing I should add is that it is very convenient that there are a couple of bus stops near the campus, as well as a stop for the Light Rail (a mode of transportation I recommend you try). Also, security here is pretty high, which made me feel safe most nights. Overall, the DU campus is a small beautiful site and I would recommend visiting if you should get the chance. As far as cost or the quality of education a student receives here, I cannot comment on. However, if you do feel out of place here, especially if you are of the minority, like myself, please connect with the Multicultural Center. It is located near the DU Apartments right on University Blvd. They are nice and always willing to help. 🤓
  • Surprisingly small, but I love DU. I don't like how they hit me up for money, but I do love DU as a school. Although, I do hate how their gym is open to professors and kids. It's creepy taking a shower and seeing a kid and elderly man as you exit the shower, which isn't all that private to begin with.
  • After work pick up mireya
  • I graduated from DU and love this school. Great programs and fantastic facilities.

Where to stay in Denver

For a touch of class near all Denver's major attractions, book a room at one of the city's historical hotels, built during the late-19th century silver rush. Denver's oldest hotels feature opulent oak furnishings, silver chandeliers, and frescoed walls, as well as spacious rooms packed with high-tech gadgets. If you're planning your visit on a limited budget, consider the affordable hostels and bed and breakfasts located outside the central part of town. Alternatively, you can also stay at one of the mid-range hotels near the airport.
