Denver is known worldwide as the “Mile High City,” because it’s situated at an altitude of 5,280 feet (1.61 kilometers). It is home to 2.5 million people and is the Colorado state capital.

Denver is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains—25 ski resorts are located within a two-hour drive.

The sun shines in Colorado 300 days per year, so you’ll have beautiful weather to enjoy the nation’s largest park system.

In addition to an extensive public transportation system, you can bike along 650 miles (1,046 kilometers) of paved paths around Denver.

See Campus Life  for additional information about the UC Denver campus.


“I consider myself highly privileged to be part of UC Denver. The Downtown Campus has the best of both worlds—it’s nestled right in the heart of the city and it’s a very self-sufficient campus… I am extremely happy with the conceptual knowledge and strength I have garnered from my courses.” Tina Rajiv Mathew, India

“I have received nothing but the most gracious attention to my needs as an international student at UC Denver—starting from the admissions process, moving through the orientation, and finally settling down in this place of beauty. I would like to thank the staff of International Admissions for making that easy, and all the people of UC Denver for their gentleness and support.” Ahmad Ali Al-Omari, Jordan

“I am not just pursuing academics in Denver: I have learned first-hand how to navigate cultural differences, have improved my English language, writing and speaking skills and have gained business insight. Because of my experiences in Denver and at the university, when I graduate, I’ll step into the world marketplace with confidence.” Roman Buzinov, Russia

“Being at UC Denver, I can not only work closely with world famous research-oriented professors, but also enjoy the culturally enriched city, the Mile High Denver.” WuWeijia, China

“Professors are not only teachers, they are friends who make the transition to the real world easier, especially for someone from a different culture. I will never forget my experience here.” Juan Carlos Hernandez, Peru
