Geez Fmpden, I think you need to re-read. I suggested that the OP visit CSU over UCD and Tabernash agreed with that comment. Kind of ridiculous to try to call her out on it.

Thanks, wtm003. I was responding to your recommendation.

I moved from CU Boulder and finished my masters degree at UC Denver. My degree is from CU Boulder, though. UCD is downtown and shares the Aurora campus with a couple of other schools.

But I'm not sure I'd send an out-of-state freshman to UCD. I think it's better for older students who aren't looking for a campus/dorm experience.

Thanks for all the advice! I am considering taking the shuttle to Boulder and then renting a car there the next day. It is $100 cheaper. Any moderately priced hotels that are nice? Also, if we stay in Louisville or Longmont would we have difficulty getting there from the airport?

No, you have the toll road that swings right by the airport.

If she takes the toll road in a rental car isn't it very expensive? Just for her information.

Boulder isn't huge. You could take the bus or Uber to pick up your car. Or rent from Enterprise and ask them to bring the car to you.

Look at the CU Boulder website for recommendations on lodging. They should have mid-priced ones listed. I forget their names.

If you want a different experience, look at Chautauqua Park cabins to rent.

PS The car might be $100 cheaper, but how much is the shuttle round trip? The extra money might be worth it in convenience.

I looked at the CU site, and couldn't find hotels recommended.

Try this site:

The Hotel Boulderado is a special place, but it isn't inexpensive.

Sorry to be so splintered today!

Forgot to mention that if you tell the hotels you are there to visit CU, you might be a discount.
