Alumni library membership

As a member of the alumni community, you have access to campus libraries and online journals.

Accessing campus libraries

We are delighted to offer a library membership scheme to all members of the alumni community for £30 annually,  you can access campus libraries.

With an alumni library membership, you can:

  • Borrow up to five books at any one time.
  • Access campus WiFi for free.
  • Receive a card that provides physical access to all three sites.

Due to the university’s licensing obligations, alumni are unable to use university computers or any electronic information products, other than online catalogues and specific only alumni-only resources as outlined below.

If you live or work in the Medway Council area, you may be able to access Drill Hall Library for free as a member of the public. See the following link for more information.
