The Phoenix Center at Auraria mission is to implement campus response services, provide  education, and facilitate dialogue related to interpersonal violence in the Auraria community.


The Phoenix Center at Auraria (PCA) serves students, staff, and faculty associated with University of Colorado Denver, Community College of Denver, and Metropolitan State University Denver. The PCA provides free and confidential resources and assistance to survivors of interpersonal violence (relationship violence, sexual violence, and stalking), as well as their friends, families, and concerned others. The PCA support services include academic advocacy, assistance reporting to the school and/or law enforcement at the survivor’s request, safety planning, court accompaniment, emotional support, and more. The PCA also provides campus education and training, awareness raising events, and campus policy guidance. 

We do not provide long-term counseling or legal advice. If you are in need of counseling or legal resources, please visit our resources page or call our office for a referral. 

The Phoenix Center at Auraria provides services to all regardless of race, ethnicity, color, biological sex, national origin, age, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, mental health status, and/or veteran status.
