Know Before You Go

The 2019 CCTM Annual Conference begins today! Here are a few tips for getting to the conference.


(See map) The preferred way of getting to the University of Denver is to take the light rail or an RTD bus. DU is served by the E, F, and H lines. If you drive and take I-25, exit onto University Avenue and head south. Event parking is available on campus for $10 (cash only!) on Monday and Tuesday in Parking Lot L. Be prepared: the university is doing some construction near the entrance of the parking garage, so watch for signs and flaggers directing you safely into the parking structure.

Session Locations

(See map) All sessions this year are in Sturm Hall, which is located on the west side of the Campus Green. Look for CCTM signs directing you towards the building.

We’ll see you there!
