While Colorado College is a private institution and our primary mission is to serve the educational needs of our students, we do make our collections open to the public as much as possible.

Visiting Tutt Library

  • Please note that our hours may seem irregular due to the nature of our academic calendar and the Colorado College Block Plan. Visitors must leave the building by 6:00 PM.
  • Visitors to Tutt Library must enter through the library's main north and south entrances, which have ramps for accessibility.
  • To ensure the security of library patrons, at certain times we ask visitors to show ID and sign in.
  • Research librarians are happy to help library visitors, though our first priority is the Colorado College community.
  • The public is welcome to use all collections, including Government Documents and Special Collections. You may wish to call or email those departments in advance to expedite your research. Research librarians can help patrons locate materials; research librarians and circulation staff will also retrieve items when necessary.
  • To locate the library on campus and parking, see the linked maps.

Borrowing Books

We offer limited borrowing privileges for Community Borrowers. If you have never borrowed from Tutt Library you must register at the circulation desk.

Computer Use Policy

At this time, public patrons/visitors are unable to access library computers. They are welcome to utilize personal devices and the guest wireless network.
