Library Access runs from 1st October to 30th September each year.

Terms & Conditions

To be eligible to apply for Library Access, you must have completed at least one year at UCD at either undergraduate or graduate level.

* In keeping with other University services, Library access will be issued via a Campus UCARD. The UCARD can be renewed each year by updating the card rather than issuing a new one. The UCARD carries a photograph for identification purposes.

Important Note 1: Your UCARD will be activated for Library access within 1 hour of joining, once approval is granted from the Library.
Important Note 2: You will need to clear any outstanding library loans you have with the Library prior to joining – contact the Library directly on this matter at (opens in a new window)client.services@ucd.ie. Or if you have any outstanding College fees, please contact the UCD Student Desk.
