Library services: essentials

Alumni Subscribers

Students who have graduated from Solent University are entitled to free subscriber membership of the Library.

Membership will allow you to study in the library and borrow up to four books at a time with two renewals, where possible, by phone or email.

Please note: Alumni membership does not include access to the library's computers, photocopiers, study rooms or electronic resources.

How to apply

Applications for subscriber membership can only be made online as you will need to upload a passport style photograph showing just your head and shoulders, in .jpg, .png, or .jpeg format.  We cannot process any other formats..  When uploading a photo, please DO NOT use a photo of your passport.  We are unable to process applications made using a photo of your passport. 

When your card is ready to collect we will email you.  We will process your application as quickly as possible - please allow up to a fortnight for your card to be ready.

To collect your card you will need to bring valid photographic ID with you (if you have recently graduated we will usually accept your old campus card if it is in good condition).

The name on your ID must match the name given in the application.

If you wish to renew your card or you require a replacement because your card has been lost or damaged, you should also apply online.
