Library services for visitors

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.

Members of the public and visitors who are not in higher education 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.

Students from schools and colleges are welcome but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

If you would like to be able to borrow print items, you will need to purchase membership rights.
