Lodging, Transportation, and Parking

Visitors Guide Information

The University of Denver is located just six miles from downtown and is about 16 minutes from the City Center via I-25 or light rail. DU’s 130-acre campus is firmly embedded in established neighborhoods and surrounded by variety of well-known dining and entertainment options. 

To help make your visit experience more enjoyable, please check out our DU Visitor's Guide Website which includes helpful resources, tools, and links with associated DU discount rates and codes.

Find a Hotel

We have many hotel partners in the area from whom you can request a DU rate upon reservation, which typically results in savings.

Transportation Services

Make your way to DU campus using one of a variety of transportation options, from chartered buses to public transit. We highly encourage the use of public transportation via RTD given the RTD light rail station next to our campus, University of Denver station, which serves as a stop on the E, F and H lines that connect all across Denver. Getting downtown by rail is quick and easy, and you can even use it to get to and from the airport on the new A line, which leaves from downtown Denver's Union Station.

Once you arrive, you can walk across Buchtel Boulevard and walk south across the campus to University Hall, which is located just off S University Boulevard and E Warren Avenue. 

More information can be found on the RTD Website

Ride Shares can also make navigating the city easier. Stay tuned for some promo codes prior to Family Weekend.
