As a faculty member, you are qualified to receive a BuffOne Card for free:

Your card will be used for room access, library checkout, etc. To receive your BuffOne Card, bring a driver’s license or government issued photo ID to the Campus Card Office after you receive your Employee ID Number.

Most ATLAS Classrooms have card access control systems, which means you can swipe your BuffOne Card to gain room access instead of using a key. See the ATLAS Front Desk to set up your access.

However, some rooms do require key access, such as the offices within the 231 Suite. See the ATLAS Front Desk: cuatlas@Colorado.EDU. Please note that if you are an adjunct faculty member, the key will need to be returned at the end of the semester.
