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.


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!

Completing Loan Requirements

Parents looking for additional funding to assist with upcoming educational related costs may apply for the Parent PLUS Loan at www.studentloans.gov.  Parents may borrow up to the cost of tuition minus other financial aid.

Summer Send-Off
Summer Send-Off events are just around the corner, and registration is now open! Please take a moment to register for an event in your area now.

Transportation Notes
When you arrive on campus, you will receive an RTD pass that gives you free access to public transportation in the city of Denver. Many students also choose to bring their own bikes and skateboards or participate in the Denver B-Cycle program. The University is also partnering with the WeCar program. If you choose to bring a car (approximately 50% of students do), you must purchase a permit.


  • First-year and transfer students are now able to view their room assignments and roommates in their webCentral account.

  • Move-in day for new first-year and transfer students will be on Sunday, September 2nd.  To reduce congestion there will be a staggered check-in schedule implemented.  Those who are assigned to odd-numbered rooms will check-in at 8 a.m. and those who are assigned to even-numbered rooms will check-in at 10:30 a.m.

  • Housing options for transfer students are limited at this time. If you will be living off campus, know that there are many great housing options nearby. Many students rent houses within walking distance of campus or take advantage of one of the many apartment complexes (such as Vista Lofts, Asbury Green or University Lofts).

  • Things to do BEFORE moving into your room:

    • Go online and get your roommate and room assignment information
    • Contact your new roommate to get to know him or her
    • Discuss what you will be bringing with your future roommate (you can review a list of recommended items – also, some retail stores, such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, allow you to pick out merchandise at your local store and pick it up near campus, so be sure to research your options)
    • Give family and friends your on-campus address (receiving mail is always fun!)
