You're in... now come explore!


Congratulations! You've completed the first step in becoming a University of Denver student, and we hope you'll continue to consider DU as your home for the next four years. Before you make your final decision about where to attend college, we encourage you to come to campus and find out what makes DU a great place to discover and follow what inspires you. It starts with the beauty of our campus, but there's so much more to experience. At our admitted student events, you'll be able to talk to current DU students, faculty, and other campus employees.
