Ritchie Tower SunsetThe Ritchie Center will be hosting a high profile event this Thursday, September 15 in the evening that will change traffic patterns around the building beginning around 1 p.m. through the rest of the evening. The only access points to the building will be through:
  • Coors Fitness Center entrance – all Coors Fitness Center, El Pomar Natatorium and Gates Field House programming
  • Gymnastics entrance – all Gymnastics programming

All ice programming in Joy Burns Arena (including Jr. Pioneers Hockey practices) have been canceled for the evening as the venue is currently closed. Practices will resume on Friday, September 16.


There will also be no access through the Ritchie Center concourse between venues from 1 – 10 p.m., so please make sure to plan extra time and enter the respective venues through their intended lobby and front desk areas.
Parking for members and participants should be unaffected. No traffic will be allowed to turn from Buchtel Blvd into the roundabout so we recommend accessing the Ritchie Center from the south side.
El Pomar participants will need to access the pool through the Coors Fitness Center. All spectators for aquatics programming will be allowed to sit in the spectator stands in El Pomar; however, there will be no access to the concourse. All restroom access will be through the Men’s And Women’s Crimson locker rooms from the pool deck.
Thank you in advance for your patience as the Ritchie Center showcases this large event for the University of Denver and its community.
