Discover Our Campus
Whether they are gathering data in a canoe on the upper reservoir, strolling a pathway from one building to another, enjoying the thrill of competition on a playing field, entertaining a crowd in an amphitheater, or simply sitting outdoors for a few moments of quiet reflection, students have many opportunities to enjoy the benefits of Kent Denver's exceptional campus.
Kent Denver's scenic, 200-acre campus supports more than 200,000 square feet of academic and athletic facilities. Our outdoor spaces include two reservoirs, more than 1,600 trees, a wetlands area and myriad different plants nibbled daily by a flock of inquisitive Canada geese.
Space matters. Whether students gather inside or out—in classrooms, labs, playing fields or elsewhere—physical surroundings have a significant impact on their ability to learn.
At Kent Denver, we believe students should have dynamic, spacious, state-of-the-art learning spaces that stimulate their curiosity, fuel their imagination and empower their best work. Our 200-acre campus includes:
