In between everything you have to do in a given day, it’s nice to wind down and spend some time with entertainment such as TV shows, movies, music, and books. But being the budgeting or broke college student that some of us are, where is the entertainment with no extra costs to us? Well, your helpful Highlander staff has pulled together some awesome resources for you to check out – all at no extra cost:
When you get inside the library and make your way down to the first floor of the building, you may come across a glass display case of various movies and TV shows all on DVD. Guess what? Those are for you to check out for free! Just head into the door to your left with your Regis ID in hand and check out a blockbuster movie or an entire TV season right from the Media Desk.
Another resource our amazing library has to offer! If there is a specific movie or book that our library doesn’t carry, then get it from another library through the Prospector database. This database allows libraries from around Colorado to share their listings for available books, movies, audiobooks, and CDs, and Regis students can request whatever they want and it will be sent to the Dayton Memorial Library for students to pick up and check out.
If you are a student living in one of the resident halls here on Regis, then you automatically have access to the Xfinity on Demand library through Xfinity On Campus. Included within your housing, just log into Xfinity on Campus online or through the Xfinity app with your Regis username and password and a whole selection of current TV shows and movies are available to stream. You also get access to your very own DVR so you’ll never miss a live event or the latest episode of your current TV obsession.
Not living in the resident halls this year but still wants free streaming? Check out this list of streaming services offered by the Dayton Memorial Library for you to use with your Regis username and password.
Throughout the year, make sure you keep up to date with the Student Activities office because they offer a lot of opportunities for great entertainment around Denver. They can anticipate which movies or live events Regis students will like to attend, and they will go out and purchase tickets and give them to students on a first come, first serve bases. Past events that Student Activities has offered free to students include the opening weekend showing of Black Panther and live events such as musicals that come to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
Not to brag or anything, but we are the news outlet that gives Regis students the low down for all the news and entertainment going around campus – no subscription required. Download our free app from the Apple or Android shop (search RUHighlander) and take a few minutes to scroll through the stories that our team publishes every day! We’ll keep you updated for exciting news and events from Regis and in the greater Denver area from all beats such as Campus Life, Sports, and Social Justice.
Take some time for yourself and check out one of these resources. After all, they are all free!
