Transportation and Parking

Airport Someone Has Tempted The Fates And Vandalized 'Blucifer' At The Airport
Denver International Airport (DEN) is the primary airport serving the Denver metropolitan area and is located approximately 25 miles northeast of Downtown Denver. As one of the busiest airports in the United States, DEN offers a wide range of domestic and international flights, making it easily accessible for participants traveling from various locations.

Upon arrival at Denver International Airport, participants can utilize several transportation options to reach their accommodations and the event venue. These options include rental cars, rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft, shuttle services, and public transportation via the Regional Transportation District (RTD) bus and commuter rail services.
Note: Depending on the time of day Rideshares options can be very expensive. We recommend utilizing the RTD services (options listed below).  

Union Station
Union Station is not only a transportation hub but also a historic landmark and vibrant destination in Downtown Denver. Originally opened in 1881, Union Station has undergone extensive renovations and is now a bustling center for transportation, dining, shopping, and entertainment.

As the main transit hub for the city, Union Station serves as a gateway to Denver’s extensive public transportation network. It is the primary terminal for RTD buses and trains, including the University of Colorado A Line commuter train connecting to Denver International Airport.

*Union Station is about .5 miles from Springhill Suites and .7 miles from the UC Learning Commons.

Parking 

Please be aware that parking availability at the University of Colorado, Denver, is extremely limited. Considering this, Ember strongly recommends alternative transportation options such as ride-sharing, public transportation, or other means besides driving. While there may be some parking available on campus, it will be scarce due to the limited capacity. Additionally, given that our event falls during a week with several large events in Denver, parking in the vicinity may be further impacted. Thank you for your understanding.

For further assistance or information regarding accommodation and transportation options, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
