Alumni Membership

Alumni of the University of Waikato may join the Library at a cost of $100 per year (Life Members may join the Library at a discounted cost of $50 per year). Alumni members can borrow most materials from the Library, but do not have access to the Library's electronic resources or interlibrary loan services.

Enquiries about Library membership should be directed to the Library Service Desks on Level 2 of the Student Centre or to the Lending Desk in the Education Library.


Members of the public are welcome to visit the Library and browse our collections, however, books and other materials are available for consultation within the Library only. A coin-operated photocopier is available on Level 2 of the Student Centre.

There is a small selection of databases which can be used in the Central Library by members of the public - for more information ask at one of our Service Desks.

Responsibilities of Library Membership

Borrower Account Notifications from the Library

When letters or invoices are posted, they will be sent to the current address on your library record. It is each borrower's responsibility to notify Lending Services staff immediately of any change of address during the academic year, (including study breaks), during Summer School, and during the Summer Vacation period.

Failure to do this will not be taken as an excuse for not receiving Library correspondence.

You can opt to receive notification in advance that library materials are due, or that material is waiting for you to pick up. For more information see Txt messages.
