Classroom Security

More than 60 rooms in Education 1 and 2, as well as larger labs in the research building, have been equipped with upgraded security features.

In the event of an imminent harmer threat, one of the panic buttons in the classroom should be pressed and occupants of the room should contact University Police at (303) 724-4444.  Pressing the button will automatically lock the room and alert the University Police.  Simultaneously, any room in that same building equipped with the security technology will also lock  and the in-room strobe light will activate, alerting occupants to an imminent threat in the building.  In addition, each room is equipped with a severe bleeding kit.  An information sign is posted with further information and instructions.

Rooms with the security upgrades are equipped with: panic buttons (on podium and accessible wall), guidance signage, severe bleeding kit for severe bleeding control, blue strobe light and reinforced caulking and protective film on door windows. When the panic button is pushed, University Police are notified immediately, blue strobe lights will activate inside of all rooms equipped with a strobe, blue strobe will activate in the hallway of the room where the button was pushed, and doors will lock on all rooms equipped with security project door locks in the building.  Occupants of the room may leave the room.  However, only University Police will have access to enter the room.

Email and Network Access for Students

All enrolled CU Anschutz Medical Campus students are assigned an email account which is the primary method for receiving university information and communication. Your university username and password provide access to the UNIVERSITY domain, campus computers, class evaluations, and student portal. In addition, all students, faculty and staff need to register for multi-factor authentication (MFA) using Duo Security to access university resources including email.

University email is an official method of communication between students and university administration, and Microsoft 365 Outlook is the only university-supported email client. OIT recommends installing Outlook on your devices for ease of use and security purposes. More information about installing and using Outlook email is available on the Microsoft Outlook Email webpage. If you do not have a password or your need to update your password, visit the university password webpage.

Students may use shared computer workstations in school-operated labs or at the Strauss Health Sciences Library. All persons using shared computers should be especially careful to log off their account when completing their work. More information is available at the Strauss Health Sciences Library computer workstations webpage.

Members of the university have access to internal and external resources for securely connecting to the university network. OIT supports both wi-fi and cellular coverage on campus. With your laptop, tablet, or mobile device you can access the Secure Wireless Network (labeled CU Denver or CU Anschutz) or Guest Wireless Network (CU Denver Guest or CU Anschutz Guest) while on campus or at our off-campus locations. Both networks will require a certificate acceptance however, for access to the Secure Wireless Network you must use your university credentials - username and password. Additional information is available here.

No Credit Courses/Audit Policy

A student may not audit courses at the Anschutz Medical Campus.  Instead, a student who has been officially accepted may register in a course for No Credit.  Persons enrolling for No Credit must pay the same tuition per credit hour as they would if they were taking the course(s) for credit. 

Students must complete regular registration and then change from credit to no credit by obtaining a no credit form and appropriate signatures before the drop/add period ends. "Request for No Credit" forms are available on the Registrar's Office website.
