I'm taking a year out from my studies - can I still use the Library? Last Updated: Jul 26, 2019 Views: 135
Your University Smartcard will not work whilst you are taking time out from your studies.
You can access the Library as a visitor, during core hours, by bringing two forms of ID, including proof of current address and photo ID.
If you want to borrow books from the Library, you can join as a subscription borrower; further information is available at the Library Membership page.
Access to your Northumbria IT account will also be deactivated, but you can use the walk-in users PCs at City Campus and Coach Lane Libraries, and will be able to use the guest WiFi to connect your own device to the internet. You won't have access to printing facilities, but you can purchase a photocopying card from Ask4Help if needed.
