Move-In Day for Class of 2022

1,500 students fill the dorms on Labor Day

First-year students, and their parents, descended upon the University of Denver campus on Monday for move-in day. Approximately 1,500 students representing 48 states and 24 countries will start classes at DU next week. The only states not represented by this year’s incoming class are Mississippi and West Virginia.

The University of Denver continues to recruit the best possible students. The average high school grade point average for the 2022 incoming class is 3.70. The first-year students also averaged a 28.06 on their ACT and a 1266 on their SAT tests.

A majority of the incoming class traveled more than 500 miles to come to DU, with 69 percent coming from out of state. In addition to first-year students, about 185 transfer students will start this fall.

The class of 2022 will be more diverse than those of recent years. Nearly a quarter of the incoming class identifies as an ethnic minority other than white. First-generation students will make up 19 percent of the class.
