U.S. Air Force Academy Public Affairs

5/3/2011 - U.S.AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- The Air Force Academy has increased its security posture as directed by the Department of Defense. All gates remain open for business, but an increased number of people will be subject to search at the gates and at random checkpoints on the installation. Public and base personnel can expect increased security checks and possible delays.

All tourists will be granted entry through the North Gate only during visitor hours, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. A valid driver's license is required for Academy access. Access will be limited for tourists by manned security checkpoints around the installation.

All visitors who need to be sponsored onto the installation for other business must use the South Gate Pass and Registration Center (PRC). Visitors with a valid need to enter must have a photo ID. Specific instructions for sponsored visitors will be given at the PRC or at the South Gate by Security Forces and Chenega Guards. At a minimum, sponsored visitors must have a valid need to be on the installation and have a point of contact that can be called from the PRC or South Gate. After the need has been validated, a pass will be issued to the sponsored visitor(s) and access granted.
