On-Campus Housing

DU provides a variety of housing options for those living on campus. You can pick between apartment-style homes or a traditional dorm in a residence hall. Want a video tour of all the residence halls? Check out this video.

Moving To School (Can Be “Crazy”)

Take it from students who have moved in and appeared in a video talking about DU’s move-in day in 2013. Within four hours, more than one thousand students moved into the dorms that year. The video shows massive crowds and lines of thrilled and anxious students with their parents. The students in the video suggest everyone be flexible with the crowd and the chaos (and excitement) of moving day. To better prepare for this big move, make sure you plan out your move-in by visiting nearby Denver U-Haul locations for your moving truck needs. If you need extra boxes or moving materials to organize your dorm, don’t forget that the nearest U-Haul location to campus is just a few minutes away!
