Experience Residential Life at DU!

Living on campus is an important part of the University experience and students are required to live on campus and have a meal plan for their first two years. It's your chance to enjoy life in an around-the-clock academic community that values learning, sharing and diversity.

For most students, living on campus is one of the most memorable parts of their time as a DU Pioneer. Residential life is about much more than where you sleep, it is all about becoming friends with students from around the world and building a community of students who work, learn, and play together.


Our Value Statement

The University of Denver Department of Housing and Residential Education holds student support as a core value of our residential communities. We strive to offer students a quality and meaningful experience and want students to value and grow from their residential experiences. Responsibility to the community is encouraged through an educational conduct process and involvement in the community. Through educational and social programming, our residents will be exposed to new opportunities, new challenges, new communities, and new ideas that will enhance their education out of the classroom. We have student organizations that are student-led, student-focused and provide leadership opportunities for all residents. Housing and Residential Education believes students are at the core of our work and we seek to actively cultivate a collaborative and caring environment where students lead the way.
