Experience Denver

Growing deep roots in the Mile High City

With gorgeous natural landscapes, a vibrant cultural scene and a thriving atmosphere of entrepreneurial and social innovation, Denver has established itself among a small list of vanguard cities across the nation. Our alumni play an integral part in the city’s progress, transforming their passion into purposeful ideas and ventures that create a more equitable and sustainable future. 

Crimson and Gold Trail Passport

Crimson & Gold Trail

Our campus is seated among the bustling activity of south Denver, surrounded by restaurants, boutiques and other businesses. We support our neighbors with the Crimson & Gold Trail, a collection of local, often alumni-owned establishments that partner with DU to offer discounts and special events for our students and alumni. From beloved restaurants and bars to new businesses just getting started in the neighborhood, our community champions entrepreneurship and local culture.
