Student Resources

As members of the CU Denver community gradually return to campus, we are committed to providing students with quality learning experiences, robust support services, and ways to be part of the Lynx Strong family. Online or in-person, we look forward to seeing you.

Course Formats

  • Choose a course format that’s right for you: in-person, remote, online, or a hybrid.
    • Join in-person class meetings with a small number of students to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus.
    • Schedule in-person or virtual office hours with your professors.

Learning Experiences

  • Register for courses crafted by faculty who have been trained in high-quality teaching in a variety of formats.
  • Participate in hands-on learning like labs, studios, and performance.
  • Participate in internships, undergraduate research, or creative activities offered at different levels of in-person and virtual interaction.
  • If you are a first-year undergraduate student, take a class with other entering students by enrolling in a First-Year Experience course that include select on-campus classes and events.

Academic Success

  • Get academic support from the Learning Resources Center (tutoring), Writing Center, or MERC Math Lab available through flexible in-person and virtual options.
  • Academic advisors are available through virtual or in-person appointments to help you plan your academic path.
  • Explore student employment or career options with a career counselor at LynxConnect who can work with you virtually or in-person.
  • Access the Auraria Library resources and study spaces with physical distancing protocols in place.
  • Use technology labs on campus if you need computer or Internet access.
  • Get help from the Financial Aid and Scholarships team with questions you may have about your aid package and scholarship opportunities.
  • Access mental health and counseling services and take advantage of the Student Wellness Center online support and programming and, as public health guidance permits, in-person use of the facility.
  • Contact Lynx Central to get connected to a variety of campus resources and find the help you need to keep on track with your educational goals.

Student Study Spaces

  • Access approximately 420 work spaces on campus.
  • 69 work spaces are centralized computer stations with drop-in and reservable options through the EMS scheduling system, 56 are centralized landing zones without computers, and 233 are school/college computer seats.
  • Request an EMS account as soon as possible if you do not have one (it may take two days to get approval).
  • Settle into open public spaces, with safe distancing in place, at the atrium of the North Classroom Building and the Auraria Library.
  • Visit OIT’s Student Labs and Printing webpage for hours and locations of student work spaces.

Campus and Community

  • Check out housing options at Lynx Crossing (formerly Campus Village) with operations modified to meet the safety and health interests of our students — including quick-service and grab-n-go dining options.
  • Find a map of on-campus food vendors and their hours of operation, as well as a list of shared spaces with microwaves available for student use.
  • Stay engaged with your campus community through a variety of virtual event offerings! Check out the Campus Happenings for fun events that keep you connected to the CU Denver experience.
  • Student Life & Campus Community provides opportunities to get connected through Student Organizations on MyLynx, Leadership Education and Events on YouTube, and weekly Student Senate meetings on Zoom.
  • To keep us all healthy, we conduct aggressive cleaning protocols across campus, and we ask you to wear a mask and practice strong personal hygiene discipline, particularly when indoors.
