Life at Daniels
There are several ways for students to start connecting with your new community. We want you to feel at home when you begin our program. Daniels Graduate Student Ambassadors will answer your questions about relocating, adjusting to campus life or taking advantage of available resources. Our social media pages will also help you connect with your future classmates.
Daniels celebrates diversity for the intrinsic values it brings to our graduate student experience, believing that we learn more by being exposed to different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Our diverse student body will find support through campus groups and external organizations like the Black Student Alliance, International Student Organization and Prospanica.
Daniels values our current and former military students’ contributions in and out of the classroom. To support their academic goals, the University’s Veteran Services office works with our military students to ensure they are leveraging their Yellow Ribbon and other benefits to their fullest. In 2018, U.S. News and World Report ranked the University of Denver #59 in the nation for veterans.
Nearly half of Daniels graduate students are women and we recognize the need to continue to support and empower our female student population as it continues to grow. At Daniels, women will find special networking and community opportunities through our Women in Business organization.
Partners and Families
Many of Daniels graduate students work to balance the demands of education with the needs of their relationships outside the classroom. Partners and families are naturally integrated into the student experience through networking and relevant student activities, and our staff and faculty are committed to accommodating familial priorities with care and consideration.

As the University of Denver does not offer on-campus housing for graduate students, most Daniels graduate students rent apartments or houses surrounding campus. Click here to find off-campus housing opportunities.
Parking and Transportation
For those students that will need to commute to campus, there are several parking options on the University of Denver campus, most of which are in easy walking distance of Daniels. Both disability permits and night/weekend permits are charged at different rates than standard pricing, but can be found through the same website. Many students choose to park in hourly paid lots on campus or seek free parking along the streets surrounding campus as well.
Those that plan to commute into the campus via public transit will benefit from several bus lines that stop at DU, not to mention an RTD Light Rail train station on the north edge of campus.
