Campus Information

Auraria Campus

CCD's main Auraria Campus is in the heart of the city and within walking distance of downtown, Larimer Square, the 16th Street Mall, LoDo, the Denver Pavilions, Colorado Convention Center, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Complex. The Auraria Campus is close to Sports Authority Field at Mile High (home of the Denver Broncos), Coors Field (home of the Colorado Rockies), the Pepsi Center (home of the NHL Colorado Avalanche and the NBA Nuggets), Elitch Gardens and the Downtown Aquarium.

The Auraria Campus is also home to two four-year universities—Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver. This unique partnership creates a one-of-a-kind campus experience, allowing CCD students to participate in amazing extracurricular activities and access a university-caliber library, student union, recreation opportunities and more.
