At least one (1) designated approver has been assigned per department. That person is responsible for submitting a request to the Security Badging Office on your behalf.
After we have processed your information, you will receive an email asking you will schedule an appointment to collect your badge.
In order to receive your badge, you must present either a valid government identification (e.g., state-issued driver's license, state-issued ID, passport or US Military ID).
You have 90 days from the date of your notification to schedule a badging appointment or stop by the badge office for your badge. After 90 days, if you have not obtained your badge, new paperwork is required from the designated approver before you will be able to obtain your badge.
RECEIVING YOUR BADGE:
By taking possession of your badge you confirm that:
FOR IDENTIFICATION: Your badge is a photo identification card that helps inform security and others that your presence is authorized on campus. University policy requires all CU Anschutz Faculty, Staff, Students, Contractors/Vendors and Affiliates to wear their badges (visible between the neck and waist) while on campus. Failure to do so may result in denial of services.
FOR LIBRARY MATERIALS ACCESS: Your badge can be used at the CU Anschutz Health Sciences Library to check out publications and other reference materials.
FOR PHYSICAL ACCESS: Your badge provides documented physical access to secured doors/gates in CU Anschutz buildings (including the Health Sciences Library) and parking lots. Some exterior and interior doors are always locked, while others are locked only during certain non-business hours. When locked, most doors/gates can be accessed only by using a badge that has been programmed to open them. If your badge is programmed with the appropriate access, you should hear a beep and/or see a green light indicator on the card reader as you scan the badge within an inch of the card reader surface (rectangular panel located near the door or gate). Your badge swipe will unlock the door/gate for about 5 seconds. Do not prop or hold open the electronically controlled doors for more than a few seconds as this will trigger an alarm and/or response from University Police.
In the event of a card or card reader malfunction, please contact the badge office during business hours 303-724-0399 or police dispatch after hours at 303-724-4444.
To arrange badge access to parking areas, you must contact the Parking Office at 303-724-2555, located in the west end of the food court on Floor 1 [one level above ground] of Building 500.
For all other secured areas, approval from each area’s designated approver must be obtained in advance. You or your approver may coordinate with this individual to obtain the temporary or permanent access you need. After approval is obtained, access will be added to your badge
Immediately report a lost or stolen badge to the Security Badging Office (SBO) Monday – Thursday 8:00am – 4:00pm and on Fridays 8:00am – 12:30pm, or contact University Police Dispatch outside of SBO hours at 303-724-4444, so that your missing badge can be deactivated until you find it or we can replace it.
REPLACING YOUR BADGE: Replacement fee for a lost or damaged badge (due to negligence) is $14.00.
NO REPRINT FEE FOR THE FOLLOWING:
You are prohibited from loaning or borrowing badges. Admitting unauthorized personnel or gaining unauthorized access to campus facilities is also prohibited. Software tracks the usage of a person per the badge being utilized. Therefore, if there is a violation of security within an area, the owner of the badge used could be held accountable.
If you transfer to another school or department on the CU Anschutz Campus, you must notify the SBO and follow procedures to obtain a new badge. Your previous access will be updated. Your badge is property of CU Anschutz and must be returned to the SBO upon separation from the University.
You are fully responsible for the safekeeping and proper use of your badge; this includes observance of the following precautions and guidelines:
Eco Pass (for employees)
