Life at Lamont

Lamont students maintain a well-balanced and well-rounded lifestyle. The University of Denver is dedicated to a strong philosophy in the liberal arts and offers an array of services, resources and programs to make your experience at DU even richer.

Life in Denver


Denver boasts a bustling arts community, and a thriving music scene, with a full-time symphony orchestra, opera house and a variety of jazz clubs. All members of the DU family receive an Eco Pass, which allows students to ride all of Denver's public transit, including the light rail, for free! There is a light rail stop right on campus with stops just two blocks from the downtown arts district.

Some of the arts organizations in the area include:


Denver is home to 4 major sports teams and countless outdoors activities, such as hiking, skiing, and biking. No matter what you do, you will never be short of opportunities for fun and growth.

Study Abroad

At the University of Denver, we strive to develop cross-cultural connections—and the new perspectives that come with them—by encouraging students to study and live abroad through the Cherrington Global Scholars program. Students who participate in the Cherrington Global Scholars program typically spend a quarter abroad and still meet all of the requirements of their degree programs on schedule and at no additional cost for tuition, room or board.

Since the program began in 2006, many Lamont students have taken advantage of this opportunity, studying in Australia, Austria, Chile, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Japan, South Africa, Spain and more. Additionally, the Cherrington Global Scholars program will pay for your applied lessons if they are not included in your study abroad program.
