The Tivoli Student Union

Capacity: up to 700

The Tivoli Student Union, a Denver landmark since 1870, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and offers some of the most unique and elegant reception and meeting rooms in Denver. The Tivoli is centrally located and easily accessible with plenty of parking. Many of its historic features have been preserved and lend a dynamic backdrop for formal events and celebrations. A variety of room and event spaces are available, suitable for staff meetings, business retreats, conferences, or elegant receptions.

Golda Meir House Conference Room

Capacity: 14

Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir (1898-1978) was a powerful international leader and diplomat who greatly impacted history. The Golda Meir house, which was relocated to the Auraria Campus from its original location in northwest Denver, is her only known U.S. residence. The house is a duplex—one side serves as a museum; the adjoining side serves as a conference room, which works well for catered and non-catered business meetings.

Science Building Conference Room

The Science Building Conference Room (Room 1086) is situated in the newer wing of the Science Building and overlooks the sculpture garden. It offers a pleasant space for a catered business meeting.

St. Cajetan’s
