Your University Card and the Library

<strong>Your University Card and the Library</strong>

Your University Card is as unique as you are.  It identifies you wherever you go on campus.  It lets you, and only you, into university buildings and allows you to access a whole range of other services, such as borrowing books from the Library and laptops on campus.  If you forget your card and would like to come into the Library, we have alternative ways to allow you access to the building. Just talk to one of our friendly staff at the Reception Desk. 

You don’t need to use your card to let other people into the Library. Family members and friends are welcome into the Library for most of the year.  Please ask them to bring photographic ID and sign in at Reception.  If they are a frequent visitor or accompany you to the Library often, suggest that they register for a free external membership, which will then let them scan in 24/7 using their own library card. 


Someone else forgotten their card?  Library Reception Desk closed?  The JunoBuddy app will let them in through the turnstiles 24/7.  Get everyone you know to download the JunoBuddy app on their phone and set it up today.  It’s now available on Android, iOS and Windows, so everyone can use it.  

Why you should always keep your card with you, and keep it safe

If you think there is any risk that you might have lost your University Card, it is very important that you register for a new one online straight away.  This costs £10 but once completed, the system will inactivate your old card so that anyone who has found (or stolen) it can no longer use it.  This is really important because everything authorised using your card becomes your responsibility, from books borrowed on your library account to damage caused to a room accessed using your card.  

For the same reason, we ask that you never let anyone else use your University Card or JunoBuddy barcode.  If they need to enter the Library, they should sign in at Reception, use Juno Buddy or sign up for an external members card if they are not a student.

As ever, if you have any questions or concerns please chat to a member of Library staff, call us or chat to us online.
