Electronic Security

Special Events

The University Police Department’s Electronic Security/Security Badging Office administers systems that provide building access and security via issuance of access control badges; door lock and un-lock programming.

University policies require all buildings and facilities on the Anschutz Medical Campus remain locked after normal business hours (With some exceptions, normal business hours are 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM). Access to buildings, docks and interior rooms, spaces, elevators, etc. controlled by the electronic security system for special events, conferences, etc., must be coordinated through the Security Badging Office (303-724-0399).

Access for event attendees can be accomplished in several ways; event organizers can assign a university staff member to the entrance of the building where the event is occurring to admit attendees (If they already have badge access to the building). If not, temporary access can be assigned to event organizers with CU Denver/Anschutz badge upon request. The Police Department can also assign a police officer or security guard to admit attendees at the beginning of the event, or assign a police officer or security guard to monitor building entrances for the duration of the event. Anytime a police officer or security guard is assigned to an event for more than 30 - 45 minutes there may be a charge associated for that service. For additional information or questions regarding police services, please contact the Police Department at (303) 724-2000. Please note: it is the responsibility of the event organizer to monitor/supervise caterers and vendors during their event.

Event organizers (university staff members with CU Denver/Anschutz ID badge) can also obtain a permanent clearance that allows access to the following areas. With this clearance, you will be able to admit attendees into any of the buildings within the clearance for special events without contacting us (Electronic Security), unless you need “dock access” or interior doors/elevators unlocked (must be electronic controlled). For additional information regarding how to obtain this clearance, please contact the Security Badging Office (303-724-0399).
