Transportation to and from campus


Arrival: Sunday, July 28 • 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Harmony University provides limited bus travel to the University of Denver from the Denver International Airport. A Harmony University representative will welcome you at the airport and guide you to the bus pick up location. The bus will drop you off right in front of your dorm. Dorm Assignments will be sent to you by July 12th.

The first bus will leave from Denver International Airport to head to University of Denver at 1:00 pm. The last bus will leave the airport at 5:00 pm.

While buses may arrive to campus before 2:00 pm, registration and checking in to the dorms doesn’t begin until 2 pm.

Departure: Sunday, August 4 • 4:00 am – 9:00 am

Harmony University provides limited bus travel to Denver International Airport from the University of Denver.

Bus reservations are made by adding a bus ticket to your student schedule in Sched.

The first bus departs University of Denver at 4:00 am. The last will depart at 9:00 am. All students are required to have departed the campus by 9:00 am, but whatever means.

Light Rail

There is a light rail that can take you from the Denver International Airport to the University of Denver Campus (or quite close to it). If you arrive before or after our last bus ride, or if you would prefer to get to the campus at a time other than when the buses are available, the light rail is a great option. You can follow the directions in this Google Maps route:


If you’re traveling from the airport when there are no other options to travel, rideshare apps are available. The cost of rideshare apps is higher than it has been in years past, as the campus is further from the airport than the Loyola and Belmont campuses.

Check In Process

Check in runs from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Sunday, July 28. If you plan to arrive after 6:00 pm, please email

Registration will begin at 2:00 pm in your assigned dorm. The dorm room assignments will be sent via email by July 12.

During the check in process, you will receive your name badge, your room key, a keycard to access the campus buildings and your meals.

Early check-in is NOT offered for this event. BHS is hosting its Judging Category School in the preceding days, and facilities and staff will be stretched to capacity.
