What you should know about the April 20 campus closure

On April 20, 2013, the University of Colorado Boulder will be closed to non-affiliates as part of continuing efforts to ensure that the unwanted 420 gathering does not compromise campus operations. All CU faculty, staff and students will be asked by security staff, including University of Colorado Police, to show their Buff OneCards to enter the campus.

Visitors with official business on the campus needed to register for credentials by April 14, and the pre-registration process is now closed.

University activities scheduled for April 20 will proceed as planned. All CU faculty, staff and students are welcome on campus, and security staff and police officers will take special care and consideration to make sure campus entry is as smooth as possible. The goal is to conduct the closure in a professional manner that minimizes the impact on our affiliates and authorized visitors.

Lawn areas of the Norlin Quad are off limits to everyone—anyone entering these areas will face a ticket for trespassing. Non-campus affiliates who come to campus on April 20 can face a ticket for trespassing—a misdemeanor that carries a punishment of up to six months in jail and a $750 fine.

Despite the passage of Amendment 64, public use of marijuana is not legal in Colorado and federal laws require the university to prevent illegal drug (which includes marijuana under federal statutes) use on campus. You can find more information at: http://www.colorado.edu/node/2764849/
