Can I still access university facilities now that I have graduated?

Following the launch of a successful trial, we are delighted to offer a discounted library membership scheme to all members of the alumni community, offering access to campus libraries for £30 annually (this used to be £50).

This offer allows for up to 5 books to be borrowed at any one time, free WiFi access, and members will receive a laminated card which will provide physical access to the sites. To register an account with the Library Services Team, please complete this short form. 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 alumni-only resources which are accessible online (e.g. online journals as outlined below). Once your account has been approved, you will be sent a payment request. Your membership may take up to 4 weeks to be approved.

Please note: existing alumni passes are no longer valid.

We are pleased to be able to offer free access to both JSTOR and Sage to all alumni. An account will need to be created, so please complete the short form below and your account should be live in approximately 1 week. For questions relating to online journal access, please contact the Library Services Team.

I’m interested in visiting the Greenwich campus. Can you show me about?

We’re always encouraged to hear from alumni who would like to visit our campuses, whether to relive their university days or if they are visiting for the first time. If visiting the Greenwich campus, we may be able to show you around.

Please find copies of our campus maps below.

If you are visiting Avery Hill or Medway campuses, you can access the libraries with a valid Alumni Pass. If you are visiting our Greenwich campus you can use your Alumni Pass to access Stockwell Street library and the Dreadnought Students’ Union facilities.
