After arriving and collecting luggage at DIA, exit the 5th level through doors 506 or 510, if in the west terminal, or through doors 507 or 511, if in the east terminal. Head to Island 5 and look for the bus labeled with route AB. You can check departure times at Island 5, in the shelter on either the east or west side. The fare to Boulder is $13. They only take cash on the bus, and cannot make change. This Google map shows the route.
Once you have departed aboard the AB bus, your travel time is approximately 1:30. You will exit the bus at the Broadway/Euclid Ave bustop in Boulder. You might ask the driver to let you know when you are at the stop closest to the University, and in particular the University Memorial Center (UMC). If you walk around the UMC on the left (west) side the second building you come to on your left will be Hellems. The Philosophy Dept. Office is in Hellems 169.
The two hotels listed below are relatively cheap, and they are the closest to campus.
- University Inn
Directions to University Inn: Get on rtd bus AB at the airport (see Travel Instructions). Exit the bus at Broadway and Arapahoe. Walk South 2 minutes until you see the hotel.
- Quality Inn Boulder
Directions to Quality Inn Boulder: Get on rtd bus AB at the airport (see Travel Instructions). Exit the bus at Broadway and Araphahoe. Walk East on Arapahoe 8 shortish blocks until you see Quality Inn on your right between 20th and 21st streets. It's really not that bad of a walk.
The RMPC is made possible through support by the Arts and Sciences Student Government, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, the President's Fund for the Humanities, the Student Group Funding Board, and the Philosophy Department at the University of Colorado Boulder.
