About University of Denver

University of Denver is a school located in Denver, CO, US with a total of 7286 courses available to enroll in.

The University of Denver (DU) is the oldest coeducational private university in the Rocky Mountain region. Located five miles south of downtown Denver, DU boasts a beautiful campus environment that serves as a designated arboretum, as well as a rich cultural heritage and rigorous academics. Founded in 1864 by John Evans, DU enrolls approximately 11,600 students annually, with the student body being divided more-or-less equally between undergraduate and graduate/professional students. The majority of the student body is from out of state.

In 2016, DU was ranked 86th among 'National Universities' by U.S. News & World Report. The university's Daniels College of Business, Josef Korbel School of International studies, and doctoral programs in clinical psychology and creative writing are particularly well respected. DU's athletic teams, the Denver Pioneers, participate in NCAA Division I; the university's winter sports teams are consistently highly ranked, having produced 75 National Hockey League (NHL) players and winning 32 national team skiing championships.

DU features three major libraries: the Main Library, which serves as the primary general resource library and study area on campus, as well as specialized libraries of law and music. At the heart of the University of Denver campus, there are several historically significant buildings. The oldest of them is University Hall, which was built in 1890. The campus also features the 11th highest telescope in the world at Meyer-Womble Observatory.
