Explore Hillel of Colorado

Hillel of Colorado, one of over 500 North American affiliates of Hillel International, is the Jewish home-away-from-home for over 2,000 Jewish students in metro-Denver with its hub at the University of Denver Hillel, and in northern-Colorado with its hub at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins. Both hubs reach out as possible to students at a dozen other colleges in metro-Denver and northern Colorado. We help our students grow into leaders through student-run and staff supported activities: Shabbat dinners, holiday programs and social justice trips connect Jewish students with mentors, with Jewish tradition and with each other; Birthright Israel and educational programs round out our offerings. Our Hillels provide students with a safe place to relax, learn, and socialize with other Jewish college students as they navigate the often-rocky transition from the Jewish world of childhood to that of Jewish adulthood.

This Hillel serves: Colorado State University; University of Denver; Colorado School of Mines; University of Northern Colorado
