Message from President DeSanctis | Plan for Reopening Auraria Campus

May 21, 2024

Dear CCD Community,

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, all institutions on the Auraria Campus (Auraria Higher Education Center, Metropolitan State University Denver, University of Colorado Denver, and Community College of Denver) will begin reopening campus. Most buildings on campus will be restricted to badge access unless otherwise posted.

AHEC Announcement

The safety and well-being of our students, staff, faculty, and visitors remain our top priority. As a reminder, we have partnered with CSEAP's team to offer you support at no charge. Additionally, please always maintain awareness of your surroundings.

If you are experiencing an emergency, contact ACPD immediately. I urge you to save their contact information. In an emergency, every second counts. Calling 911 from a non-campus phone will route to the Denver Police Department and then transfer to ACPD, adding a significant delay in law enforcement response.

Auraria Campus Police Department:

  • Emergency Dispatch: 303-556-5000
  • Text-a-Tip: 720-593-8477
  • Information Hotline: 1-877-556-3637

For your convenience, here are the contact details for CSEAP's support services:

  • 24/7 crisis support at 303-866-4314.
  • Urgent 30-minute triage appointments are available daily. Call 303-866-4314.
  • Regularly scheduled appointments are available by calling 303-866-4314 or visiting https://cseap.colorado.gov/contact-us.

I appreciate your continued cooperation and dedication to maintaining a safe and supportive campus environment. Thank you for your patience as we transition back to regular operations.

Dr. Marielena DeSanctis
Community College of Denver
