Request it. Grab it. Go!

That’s Grab-to-Go! Our 24/7 pick-up and drop-off service is available to current student, staff, and faculty of the Auraria Campus. It consists of 33 smart lockers where you can pick-up items you reserved online.

How to Use Grab-to-Go

Located outside of the library at our 10th Street entrance, simply reserve an item online by selecting the Grab-to-Go option. You’ll then receive an e-mail with instructions on how to access your items in the lockers when they’re ready. The email usually arrives 24 hours after your request.
