The University of Colorado

Tour one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country, The University of Colorado, with your CU-bound daughter or son or take in the excitement of a CU fall football weekend. The Boulder Main campus is just a 15-minute walk from The Bradley.

Once discovered, CU parents make The Bradley their Boulder home, from freshman year through graduation. Retreating to the peaceful Bradley Boulder Inn after an exciting day on campus provides a welcome respite for tired parents. Over the university years, CU families meet new friends over The Bradley’s complimentary breakfast and evening Wine & Cheese hour. When their student graduates, parents share the Bradley secret with incoming CU families from their hometowns and the tradition is repeated from CU family to family.

“The Bradley has been a favorite secret for CU Parents for 15 years, giving them a place to lounge in comfort and style while visiting their kids, from freshman year through graduation ceremonies.”

Parents and family are advised to book their rooms for graduation as soon as possible. Fill out the form below for CU graduation inquiries or request to be put on our waitlist – as cancellations do occur. Families are limited to two rooms per family for CU’s Spring Graduation (and, also Parents’ Weekend).
