Yes if you are a student at another University who are members of the SCONUL access scheme then you can apply for access to LSBU library
Make your application using the SCONUL access website - your application will go through to your own University library who will decide whether or not to approve it so please make sure you don't have any outstanding fines or overdue loans with them!
Once they approve your application you'll receive a permission email
Please bring this to our help desk here at LSBU library along with your ID card from your University and we'll register you for an account with us
We'll also take your picture to give you an LSBU ID card which will give you access to the Library on your future visits
You need to register with us when our help desk is open but once you have your LSBU ID card you can come in any time we are open
Depending on what Band of the scheme your University allocates you to you may have reference only access (use of our spaces but not borrowing) or you may have borrowing access (borrowing of up to 4 books at a time)
You can ask at our help desks for a 'guest' account to allow you to print and copy in our libraries
Along with many other University libraries we use the EDUROAM wifi system.
If you are a student from another University which has Eduroam then you should be able to access that wifi network here using your username/password from your own University. This will give you access to the same electronic resources you would have if you were studying on your own University campus
If you are not a student of an Eduroam University then you won't be able to access wifi with us
There are currently no restrictions on access to the Library for visitors registered with us under the SCONUL Access scheme, or under our Reference Only Access scheme
At busy exam times - we may have to restrict visitor access. If we do then we'll publicise this here
