University of Denver

A Foundation of Learning

As a private university located near the Rocky Mountains, we empower students who want to make a difference. Based in south Denver and with over 300 academic programs, we serve about 12,000 graduate and undergraduate students. Our classroom academics, hands-on educational experiences and global learning adventures put students on the path toward lives and careers that will shape the world.

Collaboration Is
Our Training Ground

DU Students Build a Tiny House

A DU education takes you out of the classroom to work with communities where you can learn through collaboration and real-world experience. Our academic programs connect you to professional and civic experiences that help you prepare for life after graduation.

We’re a student-centered research university, developing knowledge to tackle challenges worldwide. Whether you’re researching Alzheimer’s, sustainable technologies or the needs of underserved communities, you’ll have the resources and support to make your discoveries at home and abroad.

I love DU. It’s big enough that I could discover so many new things but small enough that I don’t feel like a face in the crowd.

I feel like the community has empowered me and given me the confidence in myself and in my peers to make huge changes that I don’t think I would have thought I was capable of without DU.

I got to study abroad in Ghana, which expanded my views and made me more globally minded. I realized how influential I could be around the world.
