Tivoli Student Union exteriorWhile Metropolitan State University of Denver and fellow Auraria Higher Education Center institutions continue to work and learn remotely, some Auraria Campus businesses are offering limited services.

Auraria Early Learning Center

The AELC will begin a gradual safe reopening May 18. The AELC will continue to take guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Gov. Jared Polis and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure the safety of all AELC families and staff. The center will practice safer social distancing by limiting services to six classrooms serving a maximum of 10 children each.

Tivoli Student Union Starbucks

Starbucks will open for curbside pickup beginning Monday. While Starbucks and the Tivoli Student Union remain closed to foot traffic, customers can call, text or email to order Starbucks menu items. Curbside pickup allows patrons to safely and conveniently pick up their Starbucks products while supporting the Auraria Campus.
