Facilities Operations & Closures
Updated September 7, 2020
The hours of campus facilities are subject to change as the college adapts to the challenges of COVID-19. Please visit linked sites below for the most updated information.
These facilities and services are open:
Campus Dining via Bon Appetit
Note: Faculty and staff will be allowed to purchase “grab ’n’ go” food at any open Bon Appetit location, starting August 18. An active Gold Card must be presented when purchasing food, regardless of payment method. Faculty and staff will be able to use their lunch club at Rastall.
Student Health Center
In order to mitigate risk to the staff working in the building and to limit the number of people in the building at one time, the doors will be locked. Please ring the doorbell and a staff member will come to the door. Students who have been seen at the Student Health Center are Optum patients, so they can request medication refills or ask questions of the medical providers through the Optum patient portal. Instructions for registering on the portal can be found on the Student Health Center website. To schedule an appointment call our team at: (719) 389-6384. For afterhours, over-the-phone advice or consultation for COVID symptoms, please contact the Optum Urgent Care Center seven days per week at (719) 636-2999. Report any symptoms of COVID-19 to the CC-specific UCH Nurse Triage Line: 833-494-0560 Pin#: 0801. If you experience any symptoms that are associated with COVID, you should contact a medical provider through this process to determine whether COVID-19 testing is needed.
Campus Safety transportation for students will continue. Emergency transportation to urgent care centers and to the hospital, as well as safe rides, are available 24/7.

The Counseling Center staff remain available to support students. The Counseling Center is shifting to a hybrid program, with both virtual and in-person sessions. Because COVID-19 testing will occur in the Boettcher Health Building, in-person counseling sessions will take place in Worner Campus Center. Students can schedule appointments by calling (719) 389-6093 or emailing email@example.com. The after-hours and weekend support that the Counseling Center has always offered will remain the same: Students can reach a licensed counselor by dialing the Counseling Center number and pressing 2; and there will still be a CC counselor on-call who will be available through Campus Safety and can be reached at (719) 389-6707.
The Chaplain’s Office will still be offering pastoral and spiritual care. The Chaplain’s Office supports students in diverse pluralistic, spiritual, and secular campus contexts. Chaplain Kate Holbrook can be reached at (719) 389-7986 or firstname.lastname@example.org for support and resources. All the staff of the Chaplain’s Office also remain available, and specific spiritual and religious communities are working on ways to remain connected through virtual platforms and support individuals and communities during upcoming major holidays. The Chaplain’s Office will be moving much of their planned programming to online formats and will announce those programs through the Daily Digest and other campus communications.
Wellness Resource Center
The Wellness Resource Center staff remain available to support students and help them engage practices, information, and resources that enable their well-being. Students can reach out to Wellness Resource Center staff through their emails:

The bookstore is open only to staff, faculty, and students from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. Ten people will be allowed in the store at a time, and masks are required. Online ordering is strongly encouraged.
Worner Campus Center and Worner Desk
View hours. If you need a new Gold Card, you can request a reprint of your card online. Please visit the Single Sign In Choose “Gold Card Management” sign into your account, select “Account Management” then “Replacement Gold Card” to begin this process. Once your online request is processed, you will be notified via email about next steps to pick up your gold card. Please direct any questions regarding our new online Gold Card system to email@example.com.
If you are leaving campus, please contact Mail Services with a forwarding address. Mail Services can forward all First Class Mail and any packages. Please visit USPS.com and use the click-n-ship option.
Starting Aug. 24, the Mail Center will be open Monday–Friday, 8:30-11:45 a.m. and 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. Please visit the Mail Center during those times to pick up packages, ship packages, or purchase stamps. The Mail Center will not be open during the lunch hour to ensure that Bon Appetit can serve lunch to students and not exceed building capacity. The Worner Center is only open to staff, faculty, and students on campus. If you are unable to use your Gold Card to get into the building, you will not have access to the Mail Center.
The Mail Services team will also be delivering to campus departments, Monday–Friday. To minimize social contact, Mail Services staff will only enter buildings if they have something to deliver or someone in the building requests a pick-up. Mail Services staff will continue to deliver packages, first-class mail, and campus mail to departments. If Mail Services does not have items to deliver, they will not visit a department. If you are concerned about Mail Services staff coming into your space, please email Mail.Services@ColoradoCollege.edu. Mail Services staff are happy to hold your items at Worner or Creekside. If Mail Services staff do not stop at your department regularly, please contact them if you have outgoing mail they need to pick up.
Those who are not comfortable with in-person service can ship packages through USPS.com. They offer a great click-n-ship online option.

Emergency Response Fund
Because many in the Colorado College community asked how they can help, we have established the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Response Fund to meet needs during these uncertain times. Many of our alumni, parents, and friends, as well as members of our Board of Trustees and the president’s cabinet, have contributed. The fund also provides the college with resources to respond to unexpected expenses developing during this crisis and for lost revenue.
If you wish to contribute, please visit https://ourcc.coloradocollege.edu/covid19responsefund
In response to inquiries, we have created a form for families interested in donating their room and board credit to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Response Fund: https://ourcc.coloradocollege.edu/covid19refunddonation. Alternatively, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
