Using our services

Joining the Library

Students and staff are automatically members and your University ID card allows you access into the Library building and to borrow books.

Visitors, members of the public and alumni wishing to join will need to apply for access to the Library by completing a registration form which they can obtain by contacting the library. Staff and students from other Universities may apply to join the Library via the SCONUL Access Scheme. College students from Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland may also apply for access,after 6.00pm Monday to Friday and weekends only, to the Library.

Membership is at the discretion of the University Librarian and use of the Library is prioritised for our students and staff at busy times.

Lockers are available to leave belongings in whilst studying in the Library.

We provide print, copy and scan devices for students and copies may be paid for by topping up your print and copy account online.

Rules and regulations

  • Children are not allowed into the Library unless accompanied by an adult Library member at all times.
  • All members and visitors are required to observe the Library regulations.
