In-person Classes Return
With omicron cases and hospitalizations on the steady decline, Regis University resumed in-person learning on Jan. 31. This return to the classroom is also possible due to the high percentage of vaccinations and boosters among the campus community. The indoor mask requirement in Denver and surrounding counties remains in place through Feb. 3 and Regis will continue to follow public health guidance.

Parking Fines Going Up 
Starting Feb. 1, illegal parking fines in Denver will go up $10 for most violations. Fines for parking in or blocking a bike lane, sidewalk or cross walk will rise from $25 to $65. The fine for parking illegally in an accessible parking space will more than double to $350. View more information.
