Campuses

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. The Nalanda Campus (6287 Arapahoe Avenue) houses Naropa's performing and visual arts programs, as well as the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. The Paramita Campus (3285 30th Street) houses the Clinical Mental Health Counseling programs. See below for more information about each campus.

Nalanda Campus

Naropa University's founding was inspired by Nalanda University, established in northern India in the 5th century, CE. The Nalanda campus takes its name from this ancient university.

Paramita Campus

Paramita Campus

In Buddhism, the pāramitās refer to the perfection or culmination of certain virtues. These virtues are cultivated as a way of purification, purifying karma and helping the aspirant live an unobstructed life while striving toward the goal of enlightenment. Cultivating those virtues is what our Graduate School of Counseling & Psychology is all about, and is exactly why we named the campus housing these programs Paramita. Located at 3285 30th Street, the Paramita campus features skylights, soft furniture, and group environments, in addition to unstructured classrooms, to allow for flexible teaching and learning styles.

Guided tours available available Fridays at 3:30 p.m. To plan a visit, please call 303-444-0202 or schedule online here
