Library building access changing June 1st

Beginning June 1 library hours will be extended to 24/7 for CU Anschutz students, faculty, and staff with a CU Anschutz campus badge. The library building remains closed to the public and others who do not have a CU Anschutz ID badge.

CU Anschutz badge holders may enter the library building for contactless pick up, to consult print materials, access printers, make photocopies, use computer workstations, and use study areas. All study rooms will be available and will remain on the library’s reservation system. Reservations are recommended but not required.  

During the summer months library staff will slowly return to the building. In-person staffing of the customer service desk will be gradually phased in starting in mid-July. As of June 1st, no onsite services will be available and users should use AskUs to seek assistance and make inquiries.

Until classroom space has been booked for the fall semester the library remains restricted in terms of events, meetings, and other large gatherings. The library will not review requests for meeting room space until July 2021.


  • Library badge-accessible hours for CU Anschutz badge holders will be 24/7 seven days a week.
  • Users are required to have their CU Anschutz badge to enter the library (*the front door badge reader only unlocks the door closest to the reader)
