Kingston University library buildings are now available for all our learners and the wider community. Please remember it is strongly recommended to wear a mask in all library buildings. We also encourage you to check-in using the NHS Test and Trace service by scanning the QR code you will find at the entrance to all libraries.
Opening hours are subject to change at short notice in response to local or national Government restrictions.
Kingston alumni are welcome to make use of the library service on a reference-only basis for free.
As a reference only visitor, you can access print resources, for example, books, journals and use study spaces in the library abiding by the library policies, agreements and regulations.
If you would like to be able to borrow print items, you will need to purchase membership rights. For Kingston alumni these are at the reduced rates of: 6 months for £25 or 12 months for £50.
Unfortunately this does not currently include access to electronic resources.
Kingston University provides wireless internet access to visitors. For more details view our Information and Technology Services WiFi page.
Please note during night opening entry will only be granted after 9pm to students and staff with current and valid Kingston University ID cards. All visitors are requested to leave our libraries by 9pm during night opening hours.
