Located in a bustling residential neighborhood seven miles south of downtown, DU is as safe an urban school as you are likely to find. Our presence shaped the area, and most local businesses are neighborhood shops that cater to students, faculty and members of the greater community.
We're committed to ensuring our students never feel threatened or uncomfortable. Trained professional safety officers monitor campus around the clock. Any DU student is free to request an officer escort at any time. Only those with proper identification can access our residence halls, and we offer reports and alerts to keep students up-to-date on any security concerns.
The closest Denver Police Department station is just half a mile away. Coming to college can be intimidating, but we make sure our students have as little to fear on campus as possible.
So that our students are protected and informed, we offer a variety of services and resources.
