The University Library is open, for reference, to anyone who cannot find the material they require elsewhere.

To access the library as a visitor you will need to show photographic ID and sign in at Reception. If you will be using the Library regularly you will need to apply for a Visitor Card at the Help Desk. Proof of address will be required for card application. We will take your photo when you are in one of our Libraries, so that we can produce a card for you. Once the card has been printed and your account created, we will email you informing you that the card is ready to collect.

There is limited guest and walk-in access to e-resources.

Registered walk-in users can print from the Library's e-resources subject to copyright conditions, and as long as this is for non-commercial use only, ie. for private study or research.

Printing and scanning for any other use (Internet web pages, personal e-mails, other documents) is only available for staff and students as this requires a username and password to access the University network. Visitors should access the public library service if they require access to printing or scanning facilities for these purposes.

Subject to copyright conditions, visitors can photocopy in the Library by purchasing a guest card and adding credits.

If you are visiting from an institution that participates in the eduroam scheme you will be able to log in to the eduroam wifi using your own institution username and password. You will need to speak to your own institution's help desk before visiting the University to set this up.

Note that during University assessment periods, due to the pressure on study space access to the libraries is restricted for visitors and other external members. When these restrictions are in place information is given on our Membership page, where other membership options are also given.
