Library membership is automatically granted to students and staff of the University and to those teaching or studying on validated courses. Services available for you to use will vary depending on your membership category.
The library registration procedure for all City University students and staff, external members and staff working for our affiliated NHS Trusts is outlined below.
City University alumni, NHS staff, SCONUL Access users and other external readers should follow the links on the left of this page to find the relevant access and registration details.
City University London students
Library registration is integrated into the registration process for your course. Once this has been completed - and you have obatined your University ID card - you will be able to start using our services and accessing electronic resources straight away.
City University London staff
University staff can complete our simple online staff registration form - you will need your staff ID card at hand to do this. Alternatively, visit your local site library with your staff ID card and register in person.
Validated course students and staff
City University validates selected courses from a number of institutions. Library privileges are only available to students on these specific courses. Students on these courses will have been issued with a regular City University ID card and will need to bring this card on each visit.
Academic staff involved in teaching on a City University validated course will need to register separately with Library Services. Library access and membership will be arranged through the Academic Development Unit.
Evening and weekend courses
Students attending short evening/weekend courses run by the Enterprise Office will be issued with a University pass. Please bring this to the library, along with your letter and receipt confirming attendance on a current course. We will ask you to complete a registration form to enable you to borrow library books.
