Returning to Campus


As CU Denver gradually returns to campus in fall 2020, we are committed to providing quality learning experiences, robust support services, and opportunities to be a part of the Lynx community.

If you are returning to campus for any reason, please read and follow the steps below before coming to campus.

Phone Check in

One-time: You must take the one-time SkillSoft training “CU: COVID-19 Return to Campus - CU Denver | Anschutz” before returning to campus for the first time. Once you have finished the training, take a screenshot of the certificate of completion on your mobile device. You may be asked to show this at a health screening station.

Daily: Every day before coming to campus, you should take your own temperature and then complete a daily health attestation. You will receive a completion confirmation email, which you should be prepared to show at a health screening station.

Health screening station locations and hours are listed below. Allow a minimum of 30 minutes to check in.

Starting Aug. 3, faculty and staff may return to campus for a limited purpose—such as picking up materials from your office—without prior authorization. Check with your Unit Return Coordinator first.

Starting Aug. 17—the first day of fall semester—all students are authorized to be on campus.

Daily on-site check-in at a designated health screening station is required for everyone returning to campus. Health screening station locations and hours are listed below. Follow these steps each day:

  1. Bring your email confirmation of completion of the health attestation.
  2. Bring and wear your CU Denver ID badge and a face covering at all times, indoors and outdoors. The only exception for face coverings is when working alone in a closed workspace.
  3. Check in at a designated health screening station, see list below. Allow a minimum of 30 minutes to check in.
  4. Those who pass the health screening check will be issued a color-coded wrist band allowing them to be on campus for that day only.

Visibly wear your CU Denver ID badge. Follow all safety protocols below, including wearing a face covering at all times, indoors and outdoors. The only exception is working alone in a closed workspace.

Most buildings will have one entry point and one exit point during regular class/business hours. Outside of these hours, building entrances will remain locked and accessible only by the ID badge reader. Make sure your CU Denver ID badge is activated and you have permissions for the buildings you need to access. For questions about your access permissions, contact dc_facilities_dispatch@ucdenver.edu.
