Benefits Overview

The University of Denver provides a wide range of benefit choices. New employees are introduced to the benefit plan during New Hires: Orientation Part One, and are given a 30 day window for enrollment. Once each year, thereafter, the University sponsors an "open enrollment" period, which allows employees to make changes in existing coverage.

Benefit eligibility is based upon the position held, and may be attached to both full and part-time, qualifying positions. Follow the links below for additional information on DU's benefit choices. Send an email message to to ask a benefits question anytime!

The University of Denver strives to create an inclusive and welcoming community for all. We are committed to diversity and recognizing and valuing the rich views of our community members. The University is proud to offer health and wellness plans that are inclusive to all same-gender domestic partners of our benefited employees.
