Transfer Students

2017 Transfer Living Community

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Denver! We wanted to let you know of a brand-new programming and housing opportunity specifically for DU transfer students.

The Transfer House will host 32 incoming transfer students for an inclusive, on-campus living experience. Yet another opportunity to form those all-important connections during this unique and critical time in your life.

Residents of the Transfer House will be a part of the Transfer Living Community (TLC) which is a leadership development program that will help you to build a close-knit and supportive community during your time at the University of Denver. Throughout your TLC journey, you will be immersed in the COMPASS curriculum. COMPASS is programming that addresses academic success, professional growth, social engagement, and leadership development to challenge you as an individual and assist you in becoming an engaged member of the DU family!

You do not need to live in the Transfer House to participate in the "COMPASS for Transfer Students" curriculum - it is simply an additional option for those interested in immersing themselves in our campus culture. For more information on the COMPASS curriculum, please visit our website

Transfer Living Community Application: Deadline Thursday, June 15th at 11:59pm
