Stay Connected with Virtual Resources

Our community may be physically distancing during this time of COVID-19, but we will always be #OneDU. The University of Denver family, including us here at University College, is working hard to ensure we all stay connected and supported via a wide variety of meaningful, free online opportunities.

From virtual dance parties for the whole family to accessible, continued learning, we’ve compiled a list of virtual programming resources to support everyone during this time. We are a community, and we are here for you.
