    This is the best school in the city of Denver and has an amazing international presence. There are some downsides to the campus including fees for parking and the campus can be quite dangerous. I love this state though and I have made some pretty solid friends living in Denver. It's definitely a campus where you have to take initiative to be successful, but it's possible if you work for it. ...Continue reading

    I chose UCD b/c of its reputation & reported small class sizes. They do not help get your credits into the system they make you do everything with little guidance. I had to look up other websites to figure out who to talk to about my classes. The campus is beautiful and has a good science program that's the only reason I stay. ...Continue reading

    Located in Downtown Denver, which has become very sketchy lately, and as a woman, it can be nerve wrecking being down there. WIFI is terrible here, expect about 5mbs at best. Transients and homeless infiltrate the library, so don't expect to go there for study time. Since it's close to downtown, the transients sleep around campus and you can smell stuff in the corners of some entrances. ...Continue reading

    Wi-Fi is a big issue with Metro State sharing the same buildings. Full of great resources and professors I don't feel safe if I'm on my own, and hate taking classes at night in the winter. The campus safety alert system is nice but if you forgot your cell phone it can be downright terrifying to check emails that day ...Continue reading

    You can get a good education here, but you have to work at it like anywhere else. I enjoy the classes and the professors a lot. Having been here 2 years, I have only gotten one terrible professor and that was in an online course. Most food on campus isn't good everything at Tivoli grosses me out and it smells like a locker room. It's sort of strange sharing campus with multiple schools. Overall, it is what you make of it. Even though it's a commuter campus, I enjoy attending CU Denver FAR more than I did CU Boulder. ...Continue reading

    I love this campus! It's a non-traditional campus which means that it doesn't have as many social events or on campus community as other schools. However, if you truly want to succeed then the school provides tons of help for students to get where they need to be. ...Continue reading

    Its not a bad school. The amount of fees tacked onto your tuition is the cost of another class. If you're looking for the traditional college experience this school is not for you. It is the ideal commuter-based campus. I originally was looking for a more traditional party college, but I enjoy this school because it keeps me focused on what is really important: my future. ...Continue reading

    It was my fallback school, but I'm glad I ended up here. It is a block away from 16th Street Mall and is in the hub of downtown. Undergraduate classes were okay!

    Pretty great campus I like it quite a bit, sometimes makes you feel like you may as well go to metro cause a lot of the classes are taught by the same people. Unfortunately it is a commuter school. The transfer process was strenuous, but everyone was happy, friendly, and helpful. Clubs are the way to go for the social aspect. Parking and food are horrid. Worst part is you're losing out on the living-on campus experience. There is a lot to do around campus and Walgreens and food are located with in walking distance. The only knock I would say is that all housing is off campus, but in a short walking distance from campus. If you live in student housing and want to own a car I will warn you parking can get pricey. ...Continue reading

    Great university in downtown Denver. They are very invested in the teaching. In contrast, professors at prestigous research universities see the teaching as a necessary inconvenience. The campus is in the middle of Denver. Most anything you want to do is easy to find. If you enjoy the outdoors, many incredible wilderness areas are 1-2 hours away. ...Continue reading

    Ive gone here for 3 years and I graduate in May and honestly this school has basically done its bare minimum on everything. My avg. class has 150 (NOT 25, as advertised) students in each. If you need wi-fi, get a hotspot. If you don't like Qdoba or hot dogs, pack a lunch. Clubs have been less than disappointing, and the students can only be described as unfriendly. So glad I'm nearly done...! ...Continue reading

    UCD is still growing & developing. wifi not great. Different from your typical state school, which I enjoy, students that are here came to learn, not to party their early 20's away.

I love being downtown it gives me the unique advantage of learning from some of Denver's most prominent businessmen. ...Continue reading

    The Psychology classes actually offered are slim compared to what is advertised in the course catalog -- that's the main disappointment. They offer several honors pre-medical courses which are great. They also have specific pre-med clubs that give you lots of opportunities. Really good pre-med, business, and recording arts school, all the other majors are mostly eh. There are many perks to living in the capital of Colorado. There are many nice people ready to help and a lot of free resources that are available to students. Expect the city life, but the education and organization is worth it. ...Continue reading

    Most Business School degrees won't get you much more than $12.50/hour. The low cost has been increasing though in order for them to add buildings. This makes little sense to me when the money should be better spent on the biggest issues the campus faces: administration & advising. Every semester I have had a problem with scheduling & advisors who don't care. Your syllabus and instructors notes are not included in tuition, their sold at the bookstore. Online admin systems are a decade behind the local colleges and every time you turn around CU Denver dreams up another fee. I'm surprised they don't charge a daily fee to use the toilets, yet. ...Continue reading

    UCD is a commuter campus, and is mainly for students who are working while going to school. This is the place for you! People just come and go so it is real difficult for the school to get a lot of people involved, not to mention we only have club sports. Great school if you want to commute and all, not the best choice if your looking for a college town! The content was good, but the teachers were not that good at all. Maybe 1 out of 10 actually taught, they seem to be more into research and teaching, take classes from non-PhD's when you can. There are not many quiet places to study, is this a school or a money making machine? ...Continue reading

    The business school is good accredited and lots of opportunities. I hate the decision I made to attend the school that I did. The education is good, but there is no college experience. It's lonely, and kind of like having a job, not exciting and fun. And unless you're a science major, most of the people on campus are dead beats. They offer any section for classes with limited seats and by the time the younger grades are able to register, the good classes are full and you end up with night classes. It's like you are being punished for following requirements to graduate at the expense of super seniors :( ...Continue reading

    College in the city teaches you how to be a real person, whereas college on a traditional campus shields you from the world in a lot of ways. Once you get involved its like a treasure trove of opportunities. I have had 5 internships with this school, the networking is unbeatable, and I love it so much I cant think of getting my graduate degrees anywhere else! Most people are 23-28 and more mature and ready to get on with class than at most public universities. There isn't much of a campus social life since Denver is fun on it's own and most of us commute and work. ...Continue reading

    This is a commuter campus and I have not really had a bad experience after transferring. Parking is SO expensive. There is always something to do on campus, and having a tri-institutional campus makes the place much more fun. There is a mix of good and bad teachers. Difficult to meet people as everyone commutes and there is a wide age range. Does not have much of a school spirit since there are limited sports or social activities. ...Continue reading

    Campus location is right in downtown Denver so it is cool to go off campus and check out restaurants and stores. Though the quality of those running the school could be greatly improved, the chancellors and deans do not seem to care about the success of the students as much as they care about the money in their pockets! However, the professors for the MBA-HA specific courses are a much higher caliber. The campus is downtown so parking can be difficult and expensive (at least for the business school which is technically off-campus). Most of the professors really care about students. ...Continue reading

    The faculty at UC-Denver are great. I was originally at CU Boulder but the snooty, rich kids drove me nuts. I transfered to CU Denver to get away from home and the people here are just plain better. This is a smaller school so the profs are friendlier. I personally am on a first name basis with all my physics profs so just get to know them. You're in the city, so there are TONS of opportunities. The library needs improvement - (CU, please take note) but all the other opportunities, community, and excellent, pedagogically-talented faculty make up for it. ...Continue reading

    The University of Colorado Denver needs to bring themselves into the 21 century. But as an out of state student, I am getting ripped off. Out of state intuition is 21K per year. I've yet to have an experience at this institution that is worth 21K! Programs are average. Clubs are boring. Professors are so-so. My classes are entirely non-engaging. NOT worth it. Buildings, internet, food, etc. The newer buildings are amazing, though. And for a science major, it's excellent especially with its proximity to prominent Denver Hospitals. ...Continue reading

There isn't much of a campus social life since Denver is fun on it's own and most of us commute and work. ...Continue reading

    Great academic program with a beautiful campus in the heart of Denver. Never use CU Denver's internet cause it sucks you're better off using Metro's Guest Wifi. Food is alright, wish there were better cheaper choices though. Tivoli bathrooms are bad. ...Continue reading

    This is a commuter campus and I have not really had a bad experience after transferring. Parking is SO expensive. There is always something to do on campus, and having a tri-institutional campus makes the place much more fun. There is a mix of good and bad teachers. Difficult to meet people as everyone commutes and there is a wide age range. Does not have much of a school spirit since there are limited sports or social activities. ...Continue reading

    CU Denver is an amazing school known more for academics rather than sports, which is party the reason I chose this school. The campus is set in one of the best downtowns in the World, the student body is extremely diverse and friendly and I have been extremely satisfied with all the courses I've taken so far. I love this school!!! The parking companies are so selfish, students should have free parking!!! Student Life is a great place to meet people, find clubs and get a job! Check it out in the Tivoli Room 303 ...Continue reading

    There is definitely very little social life at UCD, but the amount of career/internship/networking opportunities in any field of study are incredible especially with association with the Anschutz campus. ...Continue reading

    It's a commuter campus, can't really help that there is less socializing and connecting with people that could just be the society we live in now though. I am not a party person and it being a commuter school is perfect for me. ...Continue reading

    UCD is a decent school, its cheaper than going to Boulder and when you graduate your degree says University of Colorado just like the people who graduate from Boulder. There are often homeless people and scammers on campus. If you're just going there to get an education and leave for the day, it works. ...Continue reading

    The MBA and the MS Finance programs are kind of a joke. People don't seem like they want to get to know you here... This school is more interested in international students because they can charge much higher rates. The library is so bad its not worth going to and most UCD students don't leave UCD buildings. Good location. ...Continue reading

    CU Denver is a fantastic school in a great location. So I spend most of my time with my friends there. They are literally my second family. So I couldn't ask for a better social network. The DAC has the best animation program in the state. There are challenging opportunities and plenty of clubs to join. ...Continue reading

    The internet barely works, no matter how many times teachers complain. If you're planning on staying all four years then prepare yourself for a non-existent social life outside of class. The classes here are either like high school classes or nearly impossible no middle. In conclusion, STAY AWAY! ...Continue reading

    Campus location is right in downtown Denver so it is cool to go off campus and check out restaurants and stores. Though the quality of those running the school could be greatly improved, the chancellors and deans do not seem to care about the success of the students as much as they care about the money in their pockets! However, the professors for the MBA-HA specific courses are a much higher caliber. The campus is downtown so parking can be difficult and expensive (at least for the business school which is technically off-campus). Most of the professors really care about students. ...Continue reading

    The faculty at UC-Denver are great. I was originally at CU Boulder but the snooty, rich kids drove me nuts. I transfered to CU Denver to get away from home and the people here are just plain better. This is a smaller school so the profs are friendlier. I personally am on a first name basis with all my physics profs so just get to know them. You're in the city, so there are TONS of opportunities. The library needs improvement - (CU, please take note) but all the other opportunities, community, and excellent, pedagogically-talented faculty make up for it. ...Continue reading

    CU Denver is the t.i.t.s. As long as you stay busy, it's really fun. Most faculty care about students and teaching, which is rare. I found opportunities I would not have elsewhere. Sense of community may be slightly lacking, but being in the heart of downtown Denver is awesome and opens up plenty of social and professional opportunities. ...Continue reading

    The University of Colorado Denver needs to bring themselves into the 21 century. But as an out of state student, I am getting ripped off. Out of state intuition is 21K per year. I've yet to have an experience at this institution that is worth 21K! Programs are average. Clubs are boring. Professors are so-so. My classes are entirely non-engaging. NOT worth it. Buildings, internet, food, etc. The newer buildings are amazing, though. And for a science major, it's excellent especially with its proximity to prominent Denver Hospitals. ...Continue reading
