Visitors and Guests

For people who are not permanent faculty, staff, or students on the Boulder Campus, we offer a visitor or guest card. People who need to access certain services at CU, but do not hold a traditional position that would qualify for a Buff OneCard, can use the visitor card instead!
Visitors need to bring the Department and Guest Card Request Form(Click here for form) and a government issued photo ID to the Campus Card Office in N180 C4C. Campus Visitor/Guest Cards can be set up to access electronic locks, meal plans, lab printing and more, if authorized by your sponsoring department. The cost of a Campus Visitor/Guest Card is $5.00 and is payable at the time of carding. Examples of who can be issued a Campus Visitor/Guest Card when properly sponsored include:

  • Visiting Professors
  • Visiting Scholars
  • Temporary Employees
  • Conferees
  • Vendors
  • Contractors
  • Guest Lecturers

If you have questions about what type of card is available for someone visiting campus, please contact the Campus Card Office at 303- 492-0355.
