It's time to get started
If you've committed to joining us at DU, congratulations! You're about to begin a transformational life journey and create your 4D Experience with our full support. To help you set off on the trail, we've collected all the tasks and resources you'll need to start your college career on the right foot.
Parents & Family
Your parents will want to keep up on information about events, campus safety, important dates and travel. Share this information with your parents so that they have all the resources they need to support, encourage and prepare you for college life. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.
We provide academic advising for all students to help you identify your goals and give you the support you need to achieve them. We just need you to send your final high school transcripts and take the language and math placement exams before you register for classes so we can get started.
Discoveries Orientation takes place the week before fall classes start, and is your introduction to our campus community. You'll be able to meet your classmates, move into your first-year residence hall, learn more about DU's values and traditions, explore Denver and the DU campus, connect with on-campus resources, and more! At the end of the week, you'll be well prepared to transition into and make the most of your DU experience.
You'll live on campus for your first two years here. Choose from six on-campus residence halls, conveniently located a short walk from your classes. Our residence halls have high-speed internet, student lounges and laundry facilities. Your RA will be there to make sure things are going smoothly as you transition into residence hall life.
Make sure you choose a building and finish your application as soon as possible. We'll help you figure out what to bring and what you should expect on move-in day. You can even get in touch with your roommate before you arrive on campus.
