Registering for guest access

Visitors who are not part of a recognised scheme such as SCONUL Access, can visit Aston University Library up to 3 times per year for reference purposes (excluding the summer examination period) on a one day pass.  Photographic ID (such as a passport) and proof of home address will be required.  You may also be asked for proof of age.

Day passes are available 09:00-17:00 Mondays - Fridays but they are NOT available at the weekends.

Please note that day pass visitors can only use the Library from 09:00 - 21:00.
This applies even when the Library is open longer than those hours.

Please report to Reception in the Library to request a one day reference pass.
