Students and members of staff are automatically members of the Library. We are also pleased to welcome applications for membership from colleagues who work for our partners, such as SEF and Catering. If you are not a member of the University you are very welcome to use the Library as a visitor; Sussex alumni are entitled to free Library membership.

To enter the Library you will need your university ID card, which is also your library card. If you forget your University ID card, you can use the self service kiosk in the reception area to issue a temporary, 24 hour pass.
