The Boulder Creek Quality Inn & Suites is the only hotel neighboring Naropa University’s main campus in Boulder, Colorado. This makes us the hotel of choice for visiting professors, parents and prospective students.
We are located just a few steps west of the Arapahoe House on the main campus, so you won’t need transportation while in town. Campus is at your doorstep, so you can explore the town of Boulder via the Boulder Creek trail in our backyard and the famous Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall is just a short ride away on our complimentary cruiser bicycles.
Naropa University was founded in 1974 by Chögyam Trungpa. Naropa University is a wind-powered institution, which was accredited first in 1986 by the North Central Association and in 2010 was reaffirmed by The Higher Learning Commission. Naropa University is the leading institution of contemplative education in North America with academics combined from the best of Western as well as Eastern educational and experimental traditions.
Each summer Naropa University holds a Summer Writing Program. This four week long program features workshops, readings, lectures, panels and conferences, as well as provides the participants with the opportunity to work with some of the most provocative writers of our time.
