Enrolled CUNY, Not Attending Queens College

Currently enrolled CUNY students, faculty, and staff NOT attending Queens College must Book a Space at least 24-hours in advance of their visit using their valid CUNY email and follow these protocols: 

  • You must enter at the Main Gate on Kissena Boulevard; 
  • You must have a valid CUNY campus ID card; 
  • You must have your ProxyClick QR code confirmation (this will be sent via email the evening before your visit); 
  • You must have a *Cleared4/CUNY Access Pass, dated the day you are accessing campus;

*Visit the Cleared4 Support page for information on accessing your Cleared4 Access Pass. Cleared4 passes are sent via email and text to the accounts linked to your CUNYFirst account and/or to those you included when setting up your Cleared4 profile. 

Upon entry to the campus you will show your CUNY ID, ProxyClick QR code and Cleared4/CUNY Access pass, along with your reservation confirmation email to the Public Safety Officer for access to the campus. If you are not compliant in any of the required areas listed, your access will be denied regardless of reservation status. We ask that while you are on campus you only visit the library as authorized to do so, other areas of the campus are not accessible to non-Queens College community members. 

Library Policy 

No food or drinks are allowed inside the library facilities, beyond the café lobby areas located at the front entrance.

These rules are in effect to provide a safe and healthy campus environment for our community. Please be respectful of our Public Safety staff when they are assisting you as you enter campus. Thank you for your cooperation.
