Both DU and Denver rose out of the Colorado frontier and have developed in tandem ever since. We were founded in 1864 as the Colorado Seminary, only six years after the founding of Denver City in what was then the Colorado Territory.
Our students create technologies, solve social challenges and advance how we think about international relations, to name a few of the projects our undergraduate and graduate students have tackled.
With opportunities to participate in research and internships as well as robust service learning and study abroad traditions, a DU education takes you beyond the lecture hall walls.
Career & Professional Development is fully equipped to serve you online in the coming quarter! Appointments, drop-in hours, trainings and employer events will all continue virtually.Whether you are searching for a job in Denver or beyond, our team is ready to help with your planning and to share tips for job searching in difficult economic conditions.
The Student Assistance Fund (SAF) provides limited financial assistance to currently enrolled University of Denver students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardship related to an unexpected situation. (Request examples: Supplies for self-quarantine, funds for traveling home, concerns about food insecurities.)
The university has created a FAQ page regarding housing for the 2020-2021 academic year and what that will look like.
Updates for Housing-specific policies and procedures can be found on our website. Additionally, students who are experiencing financial hardships or are in need of additional resources during this time can visit the Student Outreach & Support website.
In compliance with the local and university ordinances, DU Libraries, including both the Anderson Academic Commons and the Bonfils-Stanton Music Library, will be closed until further notice, but most library services are available online. Contact the Research Center if you have questions.

Walk around campus in the fall and you'll find students relaxing on the greens, enjoying the changing colors of our many trees. Winter brings the First Snow Celebration, where our community gathers for hot chocolate and snowball fights as students and faculty enjoy the pristine beauty of a snow-covered campus. Once the snow melts, with nature in full bloom, you'll find our lawns and green spaces populated by students soaking up the Colorado sun
We offer more than 30 different club sports, from baseball to ultimate frisbee to kayaking. Our student-run teams compete locally, regionally and nationally in intercollegiate competition.
