Use our libraries

Become an Associate Member

Please note: the University is not accepting new registrations at present due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  The scheme will reopen when it is possible for Associate Members to use the libraries again.

You can continue to access our libraries at both campuses for free after you finish your course by becoming an Associate Member. After registering, you can:

  • use the libraries whenever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • borrow up to 3 books at a time (use Library Search to check availability and location)
  • access a range of electronic databases and journals when you visit the libraries.

Registration is free for alumni, lasts for a year, and can be renewed as many times as you like. If you would like to use electronic library resources online and do not intend to visit the libraries in person, please see guidance about online resources below.

Online resource

We are now able to offer access to a selection of online library resources off campus, including some electronic journals. You will need to create Your Graduate Profile and log in to get access to these resources.
