Useful information

When can I register or renew?

Library registrations and renewals can be completed whenever the Library Assistance Desks are open (please see our libraries pages for details). However, please note that complex or unusual cases are advised to make contact with the UCL Library Services Membership team at lib-membership@ucl.ac.uk in advance and / or to visit Main Library Information Point between 09:30-19:00 Monday to Friday, when specialist staff are on duty.

Private researchers and members of the public

The Library welcomes private researchers and members of the public who can demonstrate a genuine need to consult material which is held at UCL and not readily available elsewhere. However, they would need to pay a fee to use the library facilities.

The charges are currently £7.00 per person per day, £20.00 per person per week or £30.00 per person per month. Longer-term rates may also be available but only after a research need interview with the head of membership.

Please contact the Head of Membership (contact details to the right) in advance with details of your research and proposed visit.

External users are not allowed to borrow books. Those wishing to use the law collection are not able to gain access at all during term time, even if they are willing to pay a fee.
