    24/7 & After-Hours Badge Access

    24/7 & After-Hours Policy & Required Badge Types

    Library staff come around twice as part of closing procedures to ask everyone for badges, and anyone lacking the proper badge must leave the library at closing time and abide with that directive from staff or University Police. There are no exceptions in this matter--have the physical badge with you please. You must have one of the badges listed in the policy.

    CU Anschutz students/employees with their Anschutz campus badge listed in the Policy may remain in the library after public closing and also have 24/7 front door admittance.

    • Note: CU students from other campuses must obtain and present the Strauss Library After-Hours Pass if they wish to stay. 
    • University of Colorado students/employees from CU Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs campuses with the After-Hours Pass may remain in the library after closing time but may not badge back in after exiting the facility. To obtain the after-hours pass the process begins with you contacting your home library. Read the Steps about How to get this Pass!

    Please Note

    • Please consult and read the entire Policy. Lack of familiarity with the policy does not constitute excuse to stay in the library, and no case-by-case exceptions are provided
    • Your badge only grants you after-hours access -- guests, friends, family members, etc. are not allowed
    • If you notice suspicious activity, suspect unauthorized individuals are in the library after closing, contact campus police immediately at 303-724-4444
    • Importance of having your campus badge -- library closing procedures, study room use, testing in the library and what to expect
