Remember your card

You will need your college ID to enter the library building and borrow items 

We are here to help

Our staff are available online and in person to answer your questions about using our spaces and resources. 

When your course starts you'll receive a College ID card, use it to enter any of our 7 libraries:

  • Central Library at South Kensington
  • Medical campus libraries at Charing Cross, Chelsea and Westminster, Hammersmith, Royal Brompton and St Mary's hospitals
  • Silwood Park Campus Library

From Autumn 2020, our libraries will be open for socially distanced study.  We have introduced a suite of measures to ensure that you can use our spaces as safely and comfortably as possible. Read about them here and ask our staff if you have any questions. We'll keep you informed of changes to our services through our website and Twitter.

Remember that the library is for everyone - please share the space fairly and respect the Library regulationsAt peak times please use Study Break Cards to take breaks.
