Academic & Lifestyle Information

Students live in furnished individual studio apartments located in Cathedral Square North (777 14th Ave., Denver, 80203) in downtown Denver. Apartments include a kitchen, bathroom, living area, and some furnishings.

Food costs will vary greatly depending on shopping and eating habits. You can cook all your meals in your apartment if you choose. Food costs are probably no more than a meal plan at Wartburg unless you eat out a lot, which is certainly a possibility with all the wonderful restaurants in Denver.

Transportation & Parking

Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from Denver. Many students choose to bring cars to Denver, although that isn't necessary. The apartment building is very close to both the bus and light rail lines, and limited parking is available.

Students who bring a car have off street parking at no cost. Students should budget for gas costs (depending on the distance to their internship).

There is no cost for parking at the apartment building. There are a limited number of parking spaces adjacent to the building available on first-come, first-served basis. Parking is also available on Clarkson St. and Washington St.


Wartburg West will help you find an internship for any major. Here are some examples of past internship sites:



At Wartburg, student/faculty interaction is encouraged. Every faculty member is dedicated to the success of each student.
