University of Denver Campus
The View From DU

welcome to du!

Students walk across campus.

Congratulations—You're Officially a Pioneer!

Now that you have made this big decision, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make a smooth transition. We encourage you to regularly check out the admitted students tab on webCentral as well as a website that was specifically designed with you in mind: www.du.edu/newundergraduates. It includes particulars on many of the items you’re curious about, and it will answer many of the questions your parents may still have as well.

You have a lot going on, and we know you’re busy. We also know you’re anxious to get the ball rolling with all things DU-related, so we are going to send you some updates via e-newsletter each month throughout the summer until you arrive on campus. Features will include action items you need to complete and fun tidbits about life at DU – we will also speak to some of the amazing opportunities that our current students are taking advantage of.

We hope that you are as excited to be on campus in September as we are to see you start your journey with us. The next four years will be an exhilarating time in your life—you will not only form new relationships and be challenged academically, but you will also be asked to think more critically and creatively about your role as a global citizen. This time will help transform you into the individuals you are meant to become. We couldn’t be happier or more proud that you’ve chosen to spend it at the University of Denver!

Academic commons - progress report

The Academic Commons at Penrose Library construction project has progressed from demolition to building and is on schedule with an expected opening in winter 2013!  The new facility, in the central campus location where Penrose Library was built in 1972, will essentially have a similar acre-size footprint as the original library, with a 20-foot extension on the south side being the only new space spanning all three floors.
