Life on Campus

Get Involved DEN 170x150Set against a stunning Rocky Mountain backdrop and just ten minutes from downtown Denver, our tree-lined, 26-acre Denver Campus provides a full university experience — with the extracurriculars to match.

There are so many ways to maximize your experience.

Whether you’re a serious team player or just want to stay in shape, our Athletics programs cover the bases, thanks to six NAIA varsity teams, club sports and intramurals, fitness classes and organized adventure trips.

Getting involved in student activities is a great way to experience JWU from a different perspective. Our clubs and organizations span social and cultural interests, Greek life, professional development and student-run publications — as well as leadership and community service programs. By taking part in activities you're passionate about, you’ll express your creativity, meet new friends and build career skills.

From study breaks to game nights, camping trips to Super Bowl parties, our residence halls buzz with activity. We even have living-learning communities, where you can live with your peers and take part in co-curricular activities tailored to your academic interests.

When you need to take a break, The Wildcat Dining Center and its sister location, Outtakes, offer a full array of tasty foods, from quick fuel like granola bars, smoothies and breakfast wraps to market-fresh salads, delicious soups and made-to-order burgers with all the fixings.

Life off campus is just as full. Rated by Forbes as one of the most livable cities in the US, Denver is home to arts, culture, great food and 650 miles of paved bike trails. With a discounted RTD transit pass, you’ll be able to explore it whenever you want. And, now that you’re sharing space with 1,400 potential new friends from all over the country, what are you waiting for?
