Denver Neighborhood Guide

Welcome to the Neighborhood guide, designed to provide you with information on the various neighborhoods outside of the direct vicinity of the University of Denver.

The information provided through the links is from the city of Denver. The transportation options listed are just a few of the options that can take you to the University of Denver using the EcoPass, provided through a partnership with the Regional Transportation District (RTD). By living within a couple miles of a station, it allows for cheaper renting options as prices typically decrease the farther they are away from the stops. As rent prices are currently increasing across the Denver metropolitan area, finding an affordable yet large enough place to live is becoming more difficult. The area around campus has rental options ranging from studio-sized dwellings to full family homes, however these tend to be more expensive than other areas due to their proximity to the University.

The crime statistics for each neighborhood can be found at: https://www.denvergov.org/content/denvergov/en/police-department/crime-information/crime-statistics-maps.html
