How to become a member

Becoming a member of the University of Suffolk library offers a range of valuable benefits. You’ll gain access to a wealth of resources and services to greatly enhance your research, learning and personal development.

  • Extensive collection: gain on-site access to a vast collection of books, journals, databases, and digital resources spanning a comprehensive subject portfolio.
  • Borrowing privileges: depending on your membership type, you may be entitled to borrow materials from the library's collection.
  • Study spaces and facilities: enjoy a conducive environment for study and research, with access to quiet study areas, computer workstations, printing facilities, and other amenities. The library offers a welcoming and focused space where you can concentrate and immerse yourself in your academic pursuits.
  • Request interlibrary loans: depending on your membership type, this service allows you to request and borrow materials from other libraries outside the University of Suffolk for an additional charge through our Interlibrary Loan Scheme.

Whether you are pursuing academic research, professional development, or personal interests, the library offers a diverse selection of materials to support your needs.

Please note that due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to provide off-site access to eResources for External Members. eResources include both online journals/journal articles and eBooks.
