Dear Students,


               I hope this note finds you well and that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. At this moment, I would like to take the time to remind you of the multiple resources MSU Denver has available for you to remain successful in this time of change and uncertainty.


  1. The Health Center at Auraria is still accessible. They are open Monday through Thursday, 8 to 5, and Friday from 8 to 3. At this time, many services are being offered by phone or Telehealth, including mental health services. The Health Center at Auraria is asking that you please call prior to coming in for an appointment in order to minimize your risk of exposure to COVID-19. Their number is 303-615-9999.
  2. There are resources available if you have technology needs for class. Please contact MSU Denver’s Information Technology Services by phone or through their website to request a device.
  3. Another option that is available is the Student Emergency Retention Fund, which is an emergency stipend that may be used to help students during unanticipated life events. Stipends are awarded after an application has been submitted and reviewed The Committee, as funds last.
  4. The Student Care Center offers support for students who are facing housing insecurity, physical-and-mental health stressors, unemployment, or other needs. At this time, the Roadrunner Food Pantry is closed, so The Student Care Center is handling food insecurity concerns and has the ability to connect students with resources or financial support for purchasing groceries.
  5. Isolation is difficult as human connection is vitally important to our mental health. The Counseling Center is available for virtual mental health support and guidance. Please call 303-615-9902 and leave a message with your full name, telephone number, and 900 number to connect with a therapist. For after-hours and weekend needs, please call 303-615-9911. If you are experiencing a physical or mental health emergency, please call 911.
  6. The C2 Hub is also still available to virtually support you and your job search needs. You can set up an appointment with them by emailing
  7. The Center for Equity and Student Achievement (CESA) and the Phoenix Center are both available virtually as well in order to assist you through Zoom or over the phone.
  8. The Collegiate Recovery Community is continuing to support recovering students with peer-to-peer connections and resources for anyone who requires them. Meetings are being held through Microsoft Teams and the dates can be found on their website.


For the most up-to-date information and resources, please continue to visit MSU Denver’s COVID-19:Updates and Resources page.


               Your courage and ability to adapt as we move from the familiar into this uncharted territory has been admirable and inspirational. Please continue to stay safe and take care of yourself and those around you.
