Some small-town college students find it difficult to persuade their parents that transferring to an urban university is a favorable option. Although they may be able to do so without parental approval or support, they prefer to have their folks on board with the idea. Discussing the distinct advantages of attending an urban university can help. They also can show their parents the website of a Denver student housing downtown apartment community that looks particularly appealing.

Cultural Opportunities

Living in a big city provides a myriad of cultural opportunities. Young men and women can enjoy a variety of live music, theater, museums and galleries. They typically live in a more diverse environment than is the case with small towns. Residing in Denver student housing downtown puts them in a thriving, vibrant environment.


Although a general perception of sustainable lifestyles is connected with rural living, it can be easier to maintain sustainability in the city. There’s often no need to drive, and public transportation is available. Walking and biking are common ways to get to campus, stores and other locations. Garbage and recyclable pickup is done at the apartment complex without having to haul anything to a dump or recycling center.

Work Opportunities

Part-time work opportunities are abundant in this kind of residential area. Students who stay in town during the summer have the chance to work full-time or have more than one job to build up their funds for the next semester.
