Commuting to Campus

Driving to Campus

The best routes to take to campus are:

  • I-70 to the Peoria Street exit
  • I-225 to the 17th Place exit

Before driving, read up on parking information on the website for the parking office​.

Go green and save on parking expenses by combining your commute with transit and use one of the RTD's Park and Ride stations. Fees may apply if your car is registered outside of service district boundaries.

Bikes and Scooters

There are bike racks and lockers around campus, as well as scooter and motorcycle parking. Bike rack and locker locations can be found on the Interactive Campus Map​. Make sure to register your bike with University Police. In the event your bike is stolen, this will help university police recover it. Visit the facilities page​ for more information.
