Your safety is our priority, so help us keep you and campus safe by practicing vigilance!

If you ever feel unsafe, do not hesitate to contact campus police by calling 303-724-4444. You can also reach campus police by using one of the library’s red emergency phones, which are located near each restroom on all floors. You’ll also find emergency 9-1-1 red buttons throughout the library.
