Travel information

For international travelers, CU Boulder is best reached by flying into Denver airport, which is served by most major airlines, including direct connections from London, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Tokyo, etc. Since Denver is a (domestic) United hub, you can usually reach it from any major airport with just one lay-over by flying into either East coast (e.g., New York City, Washington DC, Chicago), West coast (e.g., Los Angeles, San Francisco), or one of the Texas airports (Houston, Dallas).

Getting to CU Boulder from Denver airport

The best way to reach CU Boulder from Denver airport is to take the bus route AB that leaves directly from the bus terminal beneath the airport (at the airport, leave through the exit Westin Hotel/Transit Center and take the escalators down). The AB line directly serves the CU Boulder campus with stops at Broadway/Regent Dr, Broadway/Euclid Ave (preferred stop to reach the University Memorial Center where the conference takes place), and Broadway/Pleasant St. The total driving time is about 1h, and a one-way ticket costs $10.50.
