  • Light rail directions

    There's a light rail station right next to DU that serves as a stop on the E, F and H lines. That means you can use the light rail to connect to all of Denver, just a few steps from the center of campus. Getting downtown by rail is quick and easy, and you can even use it to get back to the airport.

    Once you arrive, you can walk across Buchtel and walk south across campus to University Hall, located just off University and Warren.

  • Where to stay

    If you're a prospective student or parent, we have many hotel partners in the area. Ask for the DU rate when you call to make a reservation, as it's usually cheaper than the standard rate.
