Library tours


University of Hull students and staff

Current students and staff at the University of Hull need their University ID cards to enter and use the Brynmor Jones Library. You will automatically be registered as a library user when you join the University. Library staff located on the Ground floor can admit you into the Library if you have forgotten or lost your card. You may be required to provide identification such as your userID or student number for access. 

If you have lost your card and require another, you can request this from the Library staff member or from Student Services. Staff should log a request with HR through the support portal


External visitors

The Library welcomes external visitors. Members of the public, alumni of the University, students and staff at other universities or colleges can all apply to use the Library.
