Housing/Apartment Options In And Near Denver

Below is a list of links which provide searches for either apartments or houses. In the past, these have been very useful for some of our out of state students. You will want to search by zip code and we have included an extensive interactive list below (just click on the zip code for more information about that area). We also have a map with zip- codes (at the bottom of this page), so you can get a feel for where you are searching and of course the red star on the map is the location of the school. We hope this helps in your search.

As anybody would be, if you’re concerned about crime, avoid 80205, 80207, 80216, 80239, 80223 & 80219; basically NE and SW Denver. Again, not all areas of these zip codes are bad but generally these have the highest crime rates, especially violent crime. 80220 on the border with north Aurora, in general, are also higher crime areas in the Denver metro.

Downtown is fairly safe but like any big city you need to be careful at night, especially on the north end of downtown in the Arapahoe Square area into Curtis Park and Five Points. Even some areas north and east of Coors Field can be sketchy at times.
