Regular Facility Unlock/Lock and Patrol Services

The Community Safety Operations (CSO) program, under the University of Colorado Police Department (CUPD), provides lock/unlock and noncommissioned patrol services for many campus academic and administrative facilities. Our services are provided in accordance with the following schedule:

Regular Hours of Operation (CSO Program - Academic Operations)

  • Weekday unlock:  5 AM  –  7 AM
  • Weekday lock/Evening patrol:  7 PM  –  11 PM
  • Saturday unlock:  5 AM  –  7 AM
  • Satuday lock/Evening patrol: 5:30 PM  –  11:30 PM
  • Sunday unlock:  5 AM  –  7 AM
  • University holidays/Campus closure days:  None

The Community Safety Operations program is responsible for unlocking and locking exterior facility doors in accordance with official building hours (listed above), and providing evening/weekend lock-out assistance (e.g., keys locked in office) for authorized individuals. During normal university business hours, each facility’s designated proctor is responsible for coordinating all interior/classroom unlock/lock and lock-out assistance. For after-hours key card access issues, please call the Facilities Management Access Services desk at 303-492-5522. If you have an after-hours access facilities question, please contact the University of Colorado Boulder Police Department at 303-492-6666.

Numerous campus facilities handle their own unlock/lock and patrol needs. Facilities providing their own access control include: UMC, Student Recreation Center, Norlin Library, Wardenburg Health Center, ATLAS, Coors Events Center, Folsom Field (except classrooms), Research Park facilities, and Housing & Dining facilities.
