Logistical Information

Click here for Logistical Information for the License Pre-Diplome Course. We encourage License students to stay closer to the MSU campus, however the convenient and inexpensive Denver Light Rail (DLR) system makes housing in other parts of Denver very easy.  The Louisiana/Pearl-Auraria West Campus stops on the DLR C and E lines connect the Washington Park Studio and the MSU Campus in a matter of minutes.  Click here for DLR maps
