CityCenter building
October 16, 2018

Did you know there’s a place specifically designed to help you partner with the university?

“CityCenter … where partnerships are formed, knowledge is shared and solutions are advanced.” – Chancellor Dorothy Horrell

CityCenter at CU Denver is the new “front door” to the university. This is your portal – physical as well as virtual – to access the university’s faculty, staff and resources for your public, private or nonprofit organization.

Find CityCenter right on the corner of 14th  and Lawrence streets. You’ll recognize it by its floor-to-ceiling windows, which underscore the transparent and welcoming relationship it fosters with the regional community. You might see its executive director, Chief of External Initiatives Nolbert Chavez, inside working at his desk – feel free to come on in and say, “Hello!”

CityCenter is open during business hours to community members interested in tapping into the university’s knowledgeable faculty, hard-working students and innovative researchers. Learn more about this community resource in the stories below.

The new CityCenter at CU Denver is loosely modeled after other urban centers around the country, with a mission of enhancing the role of Colorado’s only public urban research university within the community.
