Naropa is comprised of three campuses in Boulder, Colorado—all linked by public transportation or a short bike ride.
Each campus houses distinct departments, and though you may have classes at multiple campuses, course schedules allow you time to travel between locations. Depending on your field of study, you will spend most of your time at one of the three campuses.
Each campus houses a meditation hall for silent, sitting meditation. Meditation halls are available to students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The halls are open whenever the buildings are open. There are also occasional, facilitated drop-in sitting sessions that are open to all.
- Lincoln Meditation Hall at 2130 Arapahoe Avenue
- Paramita Campus Meditation Hall at 3285 30th Street
- Nalanda Campus Meditation Hall at 6287 Arapahoe Avenue
The Arapahoe Campus (2130 Arapahoe Avenue) is home to the Allen Ginsberg Library, the Performing Arts Center, the campus Administration Building, and Presidential offices.

Our main campus, located at 2130 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder, was Naropa's first "official" campus. Our religious studies, peace studies, contemplative education, and the environmental studies programs are all housed here. The campus is also home to the Allen Ginsberg Library, the main Naropa Café, the President's office, and the offices of Admissions and Student Affairs.
