On Saturday, April 20, CU students, faculty and staff are all welcome on campus and invited to attend all official university functions and make use of university facilities as they always do. CU-Boulder’s normal academic and cultural activities will continue as scheduled, however, everyone will be required to show their Buff OneCard or an access credential to gain access on campus.
Non-university affiliates who do not already have an access credential and CU-Boulder students, faculty and staff who have lost or misplaced their Buff OneCard must visit the check-in station at the Administrative & Research Center (East Campus, 3100 Marine Street) to receive an access credential.
The check-in station is located in the south entrance lobby of the building. Individuals requiring access on the day of the closure will be required to provide proof of campus affiliation and/or participation in an approved campus event in order to be granted access to campus. The check-in station will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
CU-Boulder students who live on campus and are without a Buff OneCard must visit one of the following residence hall front desks for access instructions.
*Sewall front desk opens at 10am; all other locations open 24/7
Campus access credentials must be worn and visible at all times while on campus.
Those unaffiliated with CU-Boulder, or who are not approved visitors, will not be permitted on campus. Those who trespass risk citations, which can mean punishment of up to six months in jail and a $750 fine.
Law enforcement officers will politely and professionally engage those wishing to enter the campus to ascertain if they are affiliates or approved visitors. This will involve checking Buff OneCards for students, faculty and staff and access credentials for registered visitors.
Lawn areas of the Norlin Quad are off limits to everyone—anyone entering these areas will face a ticket for trespassing.
Alternative methods of transportation to get to and from campus are encouraged. Bus routes that normally travel through core campus on 18th Street and Colorado Avenue – including the HOP and Buff Bus – will be detoured down Regent Drive. Shuttle buses will make stops on the south side of the ARC building and at Engineering Plaza on Colorado Ave.
