I visit this campus for lectures on a monthly basis and find it safe, well lit at night and relatively quiet. The grounds are in excellent condition and there is adequate parking with apparently good security.

I have been at the University of Denver, serving as a Visiting Professors in one its school since July 2016. Enjoying the environment, the people, the students and everything. The university is pretty old - more than a 100 years and has a number of buildings that boast of architectural beauty. The newly opened school viz. Daniel Felix Ritchie School... More

DU is a highly-rated midsized private university. Its in the city of Denver with access to light rail and all the ammenities of Denver, yet the campus does not feel like its in a large urban area as it has much open space that has beautiful landscaping and plenty of places to explore. The whole main central part of campus... More

Each and every day I have the pleasure of driving by the campus on my way to work. Over the years I've watch the campus grow with added building that blend beautifully with the existing century old buildings. Students are able to walk easily from one building on campus to another without difficulty. One big bonus is the easy access... More

Son attends this school and we couldn't be any happier! The staff, students and overall experience is top notch. The surrounding restaurants are plenty, the beauty of the campus and ease of public transportation to explore the city is a bonus!

Took a campus tour and were really impressed with how large the campus was, how beautifully maintained it was, and the great facilities including a hockey arena and fitness gym. Great college and a nice neighborhood.

Beautiful looking college campus tucked away in the south of Denver. If you find yourself south of downtown with an extra hour or so check out the campus of DU. It is a park-like setting with old brick buildings, various modern and classical artwork scattered throughout the campus. Or sit on an adirondack chair in the quad and watch the... More

I visited the campus recently as I dropped off my freshman daughter. For that, I had lots of time to walk around and explore the buildings and grounds. It is quite beautiful and I must say huge, around 7 by 4 big city blocks.. There are many interesting buildings to go into, I recommend the Ritchie Center to see the... More
