The MURP Program Preview Day will be held at the CU Denver Building at 1250 14th Street, located on 14th Street between Larimer and Lawrence streets in Downtown Denver. Here’s a Google Maps link:
Our building is located two blocks from the 16th Street Mall, which features the free MallRide shuttle that stops at every block allowing passengers to hop-on, hop-off at their convenience. The 16th Street Mall connects Civic Center Station, the Downtown Light Rail Loop, and Denver Union Station—making it easy to access and move around Downtown without a car.
We encourage you to walk, bike, car-share, ride-share, or take public transit to the Preview Day. If that won’t work for you, there are a few surface parking lots and garages nearby. Parking curbside at a meter is not a viable option as the parking meters in the area have a two-hour limit.
