Public Access (Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm)

Those who do not qualify for a badge may come into the library on weekdays between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm by calling the library service desk at 303-724-2152 after arriving at the front door. Library staff will let you into the facility. This option covers those doing research from the public and health care professionals who otherwise are not affiliated with CU Anschutz and its affiliated hospitals.

Additional Information

  • Badges should be visible when in the library per campus policy.
  • The library and university police reserve the ability to check badges throughout the building as deemed appropriate. Those in the building without proper badge or prior approval can be directed to leave the library and must abide by that directive.
  • The facility is intended for quiet study and research. Access may be revoked for violating the conduct policy.
  • Study rooms are for CU and affiliated users only.
  • Guest computers are available, and the service desk provides a temporary guest login. Guests are encouraged to bring their own devices and use the onsite Wi-Fi to connect to online library collections.
