I don’t have my card but I want to visit the library

If you don’t have your University Card but wish to visit the library – please bring Photo/Student ID and your student ID number, if you know it.

Extended opening hours from 18 October

During our extended opening hours (10pm – 2am) you must visit the library earlier in the day to receive a temporary pass. It will not be possible to provide a temporary pass after 10pm.

After 10pm, you will need to show your temporary pass to be let in and out of the library. You will also need to show named ID (the MyNottingham app showing your name and Student ID details can also be accepted).

We recommend booking an appointment to collect your University Card as soon as possible.

I don’t have my card but I want to borrow books

If you don't have your University Card, please ask a member of staff for help with borrowing books. You will need to show ID and confirm the date you uploaded the photo for your card. We are unable to lend books to students who have not completed their University Card application.

We are only able to manually issue books during our standard opening hours and not extended opening (after 10pm).
