This article will inform you whether you can access the Library and borrow books if your student card is lost or faulty.
If you forget your student/staff card, you can use our temporary card kiosk to obtain a 24 hour temporary pass.
This temporary pass gives you access to the Library turnstiles only: it does not give you access to any of the Library or IT services that require your student/staff card. Therefore, you will not be able to borrow books or laptops without your card. You can apply for up to 12 temporary passes each Academic Year (August – July each year).
If your student card is faulty, you should also go to the Student IT Help Centre. The staff here will identify the problem with your card and decide on a course of action.
If you have lost your card then please inform library staff so they can temporarily close down your library account whilst you obtain a new one
