Denver Campus Facilities

Denver Campus Facilities

Near the base of the Rocky Mountains, Bel-Rea Institute is located on a 6.4-acre campus in beautiful Denver, Colorado.  Bel-Rea's campus is located in the eastern suburbs of Denver, approximately 8 miles from the heart of the city.

Denver is fast-growing, pet-friendly, and offers many cultural and recreational activities to residents of all ages.  Daytrips to the mountains give you access to some of the finest skiing and snowboarding in the country.  Resorts such as Vail, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, and Winter Park are less than two hours from campus.
