Commuter school surrounded by vibrant cities

As a graduate campus, most students live off campus in Aurora or neighboring Denver and commute in by car, light rail, bus, or campus shuttle. Only a few miles west of campus, Denver is home to many nationally recognized art venues, including the Denver Art Museum and the second largest performing arts center in the nation. Festivals, concerts, and art shows are offered throughout the year. And just a 40-minute drive away is the famous outdoor concert and event venue, Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater.

Aurora, Colorado’s third largest city, has more than 5,000 acres of open space for recreational opportunities ranging from boating to hiking. Take a short, 30-minute drive to North Table Mountain or it's just a bit further to Rocky Mountain National Park, with world-renowned hiking, beautiful mountain vistas, and camping grounds. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year in Colorado, it's hard to not explore the great outdoors.
