The Leo Block Alumni Center is officially closed. Construction is underway on the new Burwell Center for Career Achievement, which is scheduled for completion in 2020.

Where to Stay
We have many hotel partners in the area to accommodate you. Ask for the special DU alumni rate when you call to make a reservation, as it's usually cheaper than the standard rate.
There are plenty of options to take you to and from campus.
Lyft and Uber both operate in Denver, and they make it easy to get almost anywhere on-campus or off.
The light rail station right next to DU serves as a stop on the E, F and H lines. That means you can use the light rail to connect to all of Denver, just a few steps from the center of campus. Getting downtown by rail is quick and easy, and you can even use it to get to and from the airport via the RTD A-Line.
Once you arrive, just walk across Buchtel Boulevard and south across the campus to the Mary Reed Building, which is located just off S. University Boulevard and E. Warren Avenue.
Enterprise Rent-a-Car offers year-round discounts on rates for DU alumni. Visit their website or call them at 303-757-3475 and mention DU discount code NA12DU.

The Burwell Center for Career Achievement
As of March 2019, the Leo Block Alumni Center is officially closed. In its place, construction is now underway on the new Burwell Center for Career Achievement.
The Burwell Center for Career Achievement will provide a place where students, alumni, community and employers come together to advance the professional and personal lives of the DU community. Students can learn how to seek out a fulfilling career, employers can interact with potential job seekers, and alumni can connect with their peers in an inspiring building that reinforces the best qualities of the region.
As the Burwell Center for Career Achievement is scheduled for completion in 2020, the Mary Reed Building will serve as the interim home for DU alumni until construction is complete.
