We have established a dress code that reflects an attitude of modesty, personal value, and professionalism to promote a positive learning and working atmosphere.

During the lecture phase, most students stay on our campus. The guys and girls are on separate floors. All bedrooms are dormitory style and most bedrooms have a bathroom attached. Each room holds about 8 people. We also own a house called the Rez. It is located just a few minutes from the main campus. The Rez is where most of our single staff members live. It is also the house where we host speakers and visitors. Students may also have the opportunity to live at the Rez depending on space availability. Housing at the Rez is dormitory style too. There is a large kitchen and living areas with plenty of space to hang out.
Our campus is close to grocery stores, and restaurants. We also have a train station down the road you can take to downtown Denver and the surrounding area. If you own a car, you are welcome to bring it with you. There is space for you to park it both at the Rez and on campus.
