Academic Achievement Program (AAP)
The Academic Achievement Program is offered by the Sturm College of Law to support those students who need some assistance in adjusting to the academic demands of law school. Students are tutored on a regular basis by second, third, or fourth year law students who have demonstrated academic excellence and the ability to teach others. Participation in the program is determined by academic need and the availability of space.
The University of Denver bookstore is located in Driscoll South and operates during these hours: Monday-Thursday: 8:30 am – 6:30 pm; Friday: 8:30 am – 5:00 pm; Saturdays: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm; Closed Sundays.
The bookstore provides an extensive supply of law reference books, exam practice books, audio tapes, flashcards and laminated study charges. Also available are educationally-priced computers and related software, school supplies, health and beauty aids, telephone calling cards and a variety of snacks. Additionally, imprinted sweatshirts, hats, and tee shirts are sold.
At the end of each semester, the bookstore will buy certain books back from the students. For more detailed information about “buy back” procedures and the sale dates, please access the University of Denver’s website at www.dubookstore.com or call the bookstore at 303.871.3251.

Community Events Calendar
There are many University events for students to participate in. The Sturm College of Law Calendar and the University of Denver Events Calendar make it easy to locate what is going on in our community.
Student Pioneer ID Card
Your Pioneer ID card is your official identification while at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. The Pioneer card serves as a means of access to your dorm, Meal Plan, Flex Debit Account, parking, Coors Fitness Center, sporting events, Law Library, Penrose Library, Vending, Laundry, and many others.
All students are required to carry ID cards while on campus. The card is designed to last for four years and if lost or stolen, replacement cards are $20.
The Pioneer ID office is located on the lower level of the Driscoll University Center – South on the University Park Campus. In order to obtain your ID card, you must be registered, be within 30 days of the start of your enrolled semester, and provide a picture ID such as a driver’s license or passport. Students are advised to call 303.871.4545 before traveling to that office or visit www.du.edu/pioneercard for informational video and FAQ’s.\
All students enrolled at the College of Law are assigned an account. Students are expected to use these accounts. The use of the internet is not only more environmentally sound but provides a quick and efficient means for communicating with administrators, staff and faculty in the law school. Accounts are used as a means for communicating official information to students; thus students should check their accounts on a daily basis. The department of Computing Services at the College of Law will assist students in obtaining an address.
There are two types of parking lots on campus, lots that require permits and metered visitor lots. Students with a vehicle on campus must register the vehicle with Parking Services and, to help ensure parking accessibility, are strongly recommended to purchase a Denver University parking permit (General or Restricted). Parking on residential streets is restricted to residents living in the neighborhood, and are strictly monitored by City of Denver Parking Enforcement.
How to apply for a parking permit
Permits are sold via a secure website. The web address is: www.parking.du.edu. Motorcycle permits are the only permits sold in person at the Parking Office.
Review the information needed to select and purchase a permit, including prices, which is under the “Student” tab.
Select the “DU Account Login” tab located on the top right side of the Parking Home Page.
Enter your DU ID number and password. Your password is the same password used to access webCentral.
Student Billing Deadline
After this date the only payment method online is credit card. Cash and check is accepted in person at the Parking Office.
All parking permits are sold online at http://www.parking.du.edu. Computers are available in our lobby for walk-in customers. Don’t delay, purchase on-line now!
Due to the high demand for parking spaces at the University of Denver, parking lots are monitored seven days a week, 24 hours a day, to ensure availability for permit holders. There are no individually reserved spaces on campus. All vehicles parked in a Restricted or General parking lot must display a valid DU parking permit for that lot. Initial parking fines range from $15 to $100. Unpaid tickets will result in a hold on a student’s registration and may result in vehicle immobilization or the car being towed. Unregistered vehicles are subject to the same rules and regulations as registered vehicles.
Lockers are available for yearly rental from the Office for Student Affairs and are obtained by paying a $20.00 fee that is given to the SBA. It is suggested that students obtain a locker, but it is not required. The Sturm College of Law will provide the locks for each locker. Students are not allowed to use their own locks or tape anything to the outside of the locker. Lockers are the property of the Sturm College of Law.
All lockers must be cleaned out at the end of the Spring semester. If you would like to keep your locker until the end of Summer semester, you must inform the Student Affairs office. During the Summer any items left in the lockers will be discarded. The Student Affairs Office and the Sturm College of Law will not be able to store or ship anything left in a locker. All books in good condition will be given to the SBA consignment bookstore.
The Office of Student Affairs is allowed access to any locker after giving notification to the student whose locker they will be entering.
Materials placed in lockers must comply with University of Denver and Sturm College of Law policies. Students should not use the law school’s address for personal mail since the College of Law cannot be responsible for providing the safe delivery of US mail to students. Professors may use lockers as mailboxes to drop off papers and other class materials. Any student caught tampering with another student’s mail/locker or putting derogatory materials in student lockers, may be brought before the Office of Community and Citizenship Standards.
