Empty campus behind St. Elizabeth's church.While Metropolitan State University of Denver continues to work and learn remotely, employees and students with supervisory approval can briefly access specific campus buildings and spaces for professional or academic purposes. Employees seeking one-time access must successfully complete a self-assessment and adhere to the following protocols.

Administrative instructions

  1. Access must be requested from the employee’s direct supervisor.
  2. Once the access request is granted, the direct supervisor will fill out the access spreadsheet request and inform the MSU Denver Department of Facilities.
  3. Facilities and Planning staff will then verify badge access for the employee and will work with the employee if further access rights are needed. Please allow one to three business days for approval/verification of badge access, and thank you for your patience as Facilities and Planning staff processes the high volume of requests.
  4. Each supervisor/department head will ensure that access to specific office environments is staggered to maximize physical-distancing efforts. Departments that share an office area with another department must coordinate with that department directly. The suggested schedule is one person per hour with no overlapping visits.
  5. Anyone having issues with card access while on campus can call Access Control at 303-556-4296 to troubleshoot over the phone.

Prior to coming to campus, employees and students must conduct a self-assessment to look for the following COVID-19 symptoms. Self-assessment results do not need to be forwarded to any supervisor or Access Control. However, employees/students who are not feeling well or answer “yes” to any of the following questions are not allowed on campus until they are symptom-free.

Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  1. A fever or elevated body temperature
  2. Cough
  3. Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  4. Runny nose
  5. Headaches, body aches, muscle aches
  6. Sore throat
  7. Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  8. Loss of taste or smell
  9. Chills or repeated shaking

While on campus, employees and students must also comply with the following hygiene guidance:

  1. Verify you have answered “no” to all symptoms listed above.
  2. Per state guidelines, at all times wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth, and don’t touch your face.
  3. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer on the way in and on the way out.
  4. Minimize touching of surfaces.
