Denver Campus

Located at the base of the Rockies, JWU’s historic 26-acre Denver Campus is perfectly situated for big-city excitement, outdoor exploration and a wealth of personal and professional opportunity for motivated students. From the newly renovated Centennial and Founders Halls to the beautiful Wildcat Center and modern College of Culinary Arts, JWU Denver is developing students into socially responsible, community-minded, industry leaders that contribute to Colorado’s economy, as well as nationally and internationally.

The most intimate and traditional of Johnson & Wales University’s four campuses, the Denver Campus offers degree programs in the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business, College of Culinary Arts, College of Health & Wellness, College of Hospitality Management as well as in Graduate studies and enrolls more than 1,000 students from across the United States and 15 countries.

Students and young professionals are drawn by Denver’s park system; bicycle, hiking and walking trails; accessibility to professional sports and some of the world’s best ski resorts; and a host of outdoor activities – from camping, kayaking and mountain biking to concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheatre – all made possible by Denver’s 300 days of annual sunshine and mild, dry climate. Travel + Leisure, Forbes and have all named Denver one of their Top 10 Most Livable US Cities.

Johnson & Wales students take advantage of Denver’s massive convention business, location for blue-chip companies like MillerCoors, Nestle and United Airlines, and nationally recognized food scene through internships and career opportunities.

On campus, students engage in more than 40 recreational, cultural and professional clubs and organizations. They socialize at events like Greatest Day of Fun, Spring Fling and Frightmare while attending performances by leading comedians, bands, entertainers and world class speakers. There are 13 varsity athletic teams on campus, affiliated with the NCAA and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, including men’s and women’s soccer, lacrosse and basketball, as well as intramurals, fitness classes and adventure trips for all interests.

Six residence halls on the Denver Campus include the newly renovated Founders Hall, as well as suites, apartments and the increasingly popular Living-Learning Communities.

There are good reasons why Forbes calls Denver “the top city in America to live and work,” as well as one of the country’s top 10 “coolest cities” and among the best cities for millenials and for business and careers. JWU Denver’s stunning campus, only minutes from downtown but with a setting that can make it seem worlds away, is perfectly situated to experience it all.
