SOAS students and staff

There is a reciprocal arrangement between SOAS and UCL, which allows members of each College special privileges over and above those usually offered to University of London members.

Under the agreement the borrowing privileges will be as follows:

  • Staff: 3 books
  • PhD/MPhil students: 3 books
  • Taught postgraduates: 3 books

Undergraduates are not able to borrow but can obtain reference access for the academic year.

All users should bring your current SOAS photo ID card plus standard proof of address (see What do I need to bring with me? for details).
