RVU’s Colorado campus is housed in a 145,000 square foot, technologically advanced building in Parker, Colorado in Douglas County, just 20 miles southeast of Denver. Located amid rolling hills and sweeping views, the campus includes a Clinical Assessment and Simulation Center, a state-of-the-art gross anatomy lab, a clinical skills lab (in which students learn osteopathic manipulation, as well as ultrasound techniques), two  auditoriums, several seminar rooms, and a large library with study rooms. This campus also houses the Institute of Medical and Surgical Simulation, which is accredited by the American College of Surgeons (the only osteopathic medical school to hold such a designation!).

With a population of over 41,000 in the city of Parker and approximately 70,000 in the surrounding areas, Parker boasts an extensive biking/jogging trail system, recreational facilities, dining and entertainment, and a wide variety of arts and community events held throughout the year.
