Library membership alumni banner

Aston graduates can use the recently refurbished Aston University Library for free. 

How to join

Simply complete the online registration form to receive a library visitor card (you will need a passport-style photo ready to upload). 

Alternatively, please contact the Library directly by email.

Applicants will be sent an email when their visitor card is ready (this is normally within a working week). Name and address ID, along with photo ID, will be required on collection.

You can then take advantage of:

  • Borrowing up to six books at any one time
  • Access to Aston's web catalogue
  • Self-service scanning facilities - scan to your own email address
  • Photocopy services
  • Study areas
  • CafeLibro, serving light refreshments and Starbucks coffee.


Opening hours


Registered visitors can use the Library for study purposes from 09:00 - 21:00 weekdays and from opening up until 18:00 on Saturdays and Sundays according to opening hours. (Until 17:00 during the summer vacation weekends.)  This applies even when the Library is open longer than the hours specified.
