Student Transportation & Parking

A degree should help you get somewhere, and how you get to campus to earn that degree is an important thing to consider. CU Denver students have several options for traveling to and from campus safely and efficiently.

CU Denver is conveniently located downtown near multiple light rail stations and bus stops. Bicycle commuting is also a popular option, given Denver's sunny weather, active culture, and miles of protected bike lanes. If you prefer to drive, there are parking spots available, too.

RTD CollegePass
