Graduate access to libraries

Accessing campus libraries

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 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 alumni-only resources which are accessible online (e.g. online journals as outlined below).

To register an account with the Library Services Team, please complete this short form. 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Please note: existing alumni passes are no longer valid.

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:

Free access to online journals

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.
