About Us

Why Residential Education is in Our Name

HRE goes beyond just providing housing. Our mission is to foster individuals and inclusive communities, with a strong focus on supporting students throughout their residential experience. Grounded in core values such as Diversity and Social Justice, Sustainability, Student Care & Development, and Staff Support & Development, we bring this mission to life.

Through comprehensive training and resources for our staff, a commitment to advocacy, and a dedication to inclusive excellence, we enhance educational opportunities within HRE. We're excited to welcome you to your new home at DU, where HRE takes pride in offering a personalized and unique experience centered around inclusivity, community, and engagement.

We look forward to making your time with Housing and Residential Education at DU enriching and memorable!
