Resources on campus
When you arrive at the University of Denver we want you to know that you are in a supportive and caring environment, with students, faculty and staff that are eager to help you in your journey. There are many activities you will participate in during your Discoveries Orientation week (such as meeting with your faculty advisor, connecting with fellow students, and registering for classes) designed to assist you in making a smooth transition to campus. As you settle in to life at DU, begin to take advantage of the opportunities that will help you develop new skills, connections and overall wellness. For more information on available campus resources, please see our blog.
ATTEND TRANSFER STUDENT ORIENTATION
To ensure a smooth transition into DU, Transfer Student Orientation is required for all incoming transfer students. Discoveries Orientation is September 3rd-7th. While it is highly encouraged that students attend the full week, if you are unable to attend due to other commitments, a one day make-up option is available Friday, August 24th. Register online!

The Denver Publishing Institute (DPI) first opened its doors in July 1976 to a group of students from around the country, and abroad, eager to learn about book publishing. Since then, the four-week summer program has trained more than 3,000 students for the world of books. At the helm of this institution is Joyce Meskis, Publishing Institute director and Denver-area bookseller who is recognized as a leader in the book publishing industry.

Ask DU Blog
Question: What services do you provide for students with disabilities and learning differences?
If you are a student with a physical disability, learning difference and/or ADHD, you may know that every higher education institution has an office that provides reasonable accommodations based on a documented disability. At DU, there are two programs that support students, the Disability Services Program (DSP) and the Learning Effectiveness Program (LEP). They are two different departments offering two different services. However, they work closely to ensure that the needs of students are met.
