Security Badging Office

Obtain a Badge


""
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 U.S. State issued driver’s license, State I.D., Passport, or U.S. Military I.D.
 
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 would be required from your approver before you will be able to obtain a badge.
 

Official Access Control and Physical Security Standards Policy

 CARE AND USE OF YOUR BADGE

You are fully responsible for the safekeeping and proper use of your badge; this includes observance of the following precautions and guidelines:
·         Shield from heat and any exposure that causes damage.
·         Do not puncture, pierce, cut or bend.
·         Do not, under any circumstances, allow use by others.
·         Your badge belongs to the University Police Department; you must return it to the Security Badging Office before we can issue a replacement or upon termination of employment.

 

Outside of business hours (or 24/7 in some cases), many university building doors and parking lots can be accessed only by scanning your access control badge in front of a card reader (rectangular panel located to the right or left of the door or gate). If your badge contains the appropriate access, you should hear a beep and/or see a green indicator light as you pass it within one inch of the reader surface, after which you will have about five seconds to enter the door or gate. Do not hold or prop open card-access doors for more than a few seconds. This will prompt an alarm and/or a response from security.

In the event of a card reader or card malfunction, you may contact the Security Badge Office during business hours or Police Dispatch after-hours by calling directly or utilizing one of several indoor and outdoor emergency phones on campus that ring directly to Police Dispatch. Before we can admit you to the area you seek to enter, we must verify your access authorization and identification. You can also report a badge or reader problem online.

OBLIGATIONS OF CARDHOLDERS

University policy requires the Anschutz Medical Campus employees, affiliates, contractors and students to wear their badges (visible between neck and waist) while on campus and to immediately report a lost or stolen badge to the Security Badging Office so that we can deactivate the missing badge until you find it or we replace it. You are prohibited from loaning or borrowing badges, admitting unauthorized personnel or gaining unauthorized access to campus facilities. Our software records each time you use your badge for access. You are required to protect your badge from damage caused by bending, cracking, breaking or hole-punching, or by exposure to heat, pets, washing machines, etc. If you transfer to another department or school, you must notify the Security Badging Office and follow procedures to obtain a new badge. Your badge is university property and must be returned to the Security Badging Office upon termination of employment, affiliation or student status.

Your badge is a photo identification card that helps inform security and others that your presence is authorized on campus. University policy requires AMC 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.
 
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 we can deactivate the missing badge until you find it or we can replace it. You are prohibited from loaning or borrowing badges; admitting unauthorized personnel or gaining unauthorized access to campus facilities.  Our 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 Anschutz Medical Campus, you must notify the SBO and follow procedures to obtain a new badge.  Your previous access will be updated.  Your badge is University property and must be returned to the SBO upon separation from the University.
