University Park

High-End Residential Area Near the University of Denver




University Park is a high-end residential neighborhood adjacent to the University of Denver. Filled with large houses and their well-groomed lawns, its one of the nicest areas the city has to offer.

While largely made up of single-family homes, University Park does contain several luxury apartment buildings. In addition to these apartments, there are some smaller buildings scattered throughout. But because of the exclusive nature of the area, these may prove themselves tricky to find. Regardless of where you decide to live, residents won’t find themselves longing for a car thanks to the nearby commercial corridors and conveniently located RTS station.

University Park — 8/10 Rating (based on 36 neighborhood reviews)
The neighborhood is nice and quiet! It is 10 minutes from downtown, and a less than 30 minutes from the closest hikes. There are many single-family homes and parks nearby, which makes for a nice place to walk with friends or your dog. It would be nice to have more food options nearby, but it is within delivery range of many places and is a quick drive to food as well!

Atelier at University Park
Walking distance to campus, but not as many places to eat, drink, or shop in walking distance. Need to drive to get to grocery stores, pharmacies, most restaurants/bars, etc. Observatory Park is close by, which is great for picnics and throwing a ball around when the weather is good.

Super close to DU and everything surrounding DU. Also a nice midway between DTC and downtown for possibly commute to work. Apartment family friendly? No. Pet friendly? No. Safe? Apartments are safe. Parking garage and bikes are not.

I love the area. It is close to campus, transit, and restaurants. The only problem is that because of how close it is to campus there are always a lot of undergrads and it can get noisy on the weekends.

I like the DU neighborhood, but it is loud from people partying and traffic, and so there is lots of pollution.

I love the location. Very close to campus. It's a pretty safe area and very dog friendly. The RTD station is walking distance. The undergrads can be kind of loud at night though.

Nice parks for walking. The sidewalks are busted. It's right near all the fraternities and sororities so significant traffic on that back road and very little street parking if people come visit you.

Close enough to campus to walk with a lot of restaurants and bars close by. You are super close to campus so you're primarily see other students out to bars. If you're looking to go downtown or to South Broadway it is a little bit of a trek to get down there.

Experience has been alright. Lots of homeless in the general vicinity but none have been rude to me yet so that's good. It's close to the DU campus, 5 minutes walk from the law school.

It is exactly what you would expect from a campus neighborhood. You are close to school, it's easy to be social, plenty of bars and restaurants, grocery store is close and there are options. Also close to the light rail - 20 min to downtown. However, there are young people everywhere and they tend to be loud at night even during COVID. There is pretty high crime, especially at the gas station across the street - robbery, indecent exposure, attempted assault, harrassment, etc. Campus safety does keep you informed and you are alerted if there is a dangerous person in your area. I have not felt unsafe walking around during the day (I am a 20 something female).

S. Colorado Blvd has decently heavy traffic and emits a lot of road noise. There are, however, solid grocery and eating options in the neighborhood. We are very close to a beautiful neighborhood (Observatory Park), so we benefit from easy access to their vibe.

One Observatory Park is right on the border between University and University Park. It is a great location because you get to experience both University and University Park. I think the neighborhoods are nice, clean, and safe.

Generally I like the neighborhood. There's a lot of traffic, but that's just the nature of living by a busy street like University. There's a lot of space to go for a walk or a run in the nearby neighborhoods, people are very friendly, and the neighborhood is generally clean. It would be nice if there were more restaurants in the area, or a yoga studio.

The neighborhood is fairly quiet. I was able to join a "Neighborhood" app where you can communicate problems, events, ideas, or whatever else with people near you. University House has a parking garage so you do not have to worry about people breaking into your car.
