Adventures in business and beyond. Right here.

If you want to know why they call Aurora, Colorado the Gateway to the Rockies, take a look at the views. Part of the booming Denver Metro Area, Aurora is recognized for its beauty, infrastructure, and entrepreneur-friendly environment. Being right next to one of the country’s top medical school campuses and near some of the best in dining, entertainment, and outdoor activity? We thought you might like that, too. Our campus, the metro areas around it, and the mountains just beyond make sure your work and life are balanced—it’s one of the things Colorado is known for.

The mountains (and more) are calling

Hiking, biking, golf, and so many other outdoor activities, both around campus and a 30-minute drive into the mountains.

Nine ski resorts within driving distance, plus some of the top resort towns in the world.

300 days of sunshine each year

Professional football, baseball, hockey, soccer, and more are a short drive or train ride away.

Live music close by, including at one of the top venues in the world, Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Culture and arts, including museums, performing arts, and wildlife and ecological education.

Top restaurants, craft breweries, wineries, and nightlife.

Two Fitzsimons campus light rail train stations to get you to downtown Denver and Denver International Airport.

Quick access to main thoroughfares and highways, so you can easily get to all the above.
