The Alumni Library Card does not only let you borrow library books and media items, it is also your pass to the Learning Commons during the Card Access Period!

The Learning Commons opens 24 hours, 7 days a week during term time.  When it stays open while the Library closes (i.e., the Card Access Period), users need a valid card to enter the facility.  Alumni Library Card holders can swipe the cards at the barcode scanner at the left of the entrance gate to enter.  If you have not applied for a Library Card yet, please see the details here:
