The University of Denver is embarking on an era of transformation. The Denver Advantage Campus Framework Plan seeks to re-envision the University of Denver campus as “a vibrant college town in the heart of the city.” The first step in this project involves the construction of a new residence hall and Community Commons next-door to Morgridge’s Katherine Ruffatto Hall. As we in the Morgridge community continue to build strong practical and pedagogical foundations for educators and students, the University joins us in building strong physical foundations that truly represent our collective commitment to positively shape the Denver area.

Below you will find useful information to help you get around campus during this exciting time. Please check back periodically as we make updates.

Building Access

Katherine Ruffatto Hall

The construction process is expected to take two years. During that time, all entrances to Katherine Ruffatto Hall will remain accessible.

Please note that the newly improved “Z” crosswalk by Anderson Academic Commons at Evans Ave. is now open. The crosswalk in-between Driscoll and Ruffatto Hall on Race St. and Evans Ave. will be installed in December 2018.
