Prospective Students

The world can be your classroom.

Education is an adventure. What will you study? What discoveries will you make? The University of Denver connects students and faculty to take on the journey together.

Head to the Meyer-Womble Observatory to track the orbits of asteroids through the highest-altitude telescope in the United States. Develop marketing plans for sustainable businesses in Costa Rica. Advance your degree in an emerging field like nanotechnology or video game design. Unearth new findings in state-of-the-art research facilities.

If you're looking to surround yourself with a community of peers and faculty committed to a higher purpose though rigorous academics and real-world experience, DU is the place.

Learn among the best

A truly well-rounded education goes beyond four walls. As a University of Denver student, you’ll be encouraged to exercise your independence and embrace different points of view.

Participate in programs that help improve the local and global communities. Get your voice heard by working with one of the many Denver community organizations that partner with the University. Or, expand your horizons further and work with community groups in Kenya, Serbia, and other places across the globe. With students from all across the U.S. and more than 90 other countries, you’ll be immersed in an inclusive culture that inspires you to be your best.

Explore the DU experience


DU students celebrate at Keystone during Winter Carnival 2013.

We’re not your typical university. Our pristine, 125-acre campus sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains—which means Colorado’s playground is right in your backyard. And the active lifestyle doesn’t stop there.

Bike to class or ride along Denver’s many bike paths. Cheer on our Division I hockey team. Take in live music at Gates Concert Hall. Volunteer in the community and abroad. At the University of Denver, life is rich and rewarding both inside and outside of the classroom.
