Welcome Class of 2023

Monday, Sept. 2, is move-in day for first-year students at the University of Denver. Nearly all 50 states are represented in the roughly 1,400 students making up the Class of 2023 — only Mississippi and North Dakota do not have a single student in the class.

A vast majority of the incoming class will require a plane ticket or daylong drive before making it to campus. Seventy-two percent of students are coming from out of state, representing 48 states and 20 countries. In fact, 67% of first-year students are traveling more than 500 miles to get to DU.

  • 28% are from Colorado
  • 15% are from the West
  • 9% are from the Southwest
  • 21% are from the Midwest
  • 13% are from the Northeast
  • 9% are from the Southeast
  • 5% are international

First-generation college students make up 19% of the class, while 10% are legacy students who have had a sibling or parent attend DU before them.
