Coventry University students and staff are automatically registered with the library after you enrol. You can use the library as long as you have a valid student / staff ID card, which is also your Library ID. Therefore, don't forget to bring your University ID card to access. If you forget your card we will issue up to three day passes a year, but it's best to remember it as it allows you to borrow both books and laptops as well as activating our gates.
If you are a new student without a card please bring some other form of ID until you have your university card, and if you have lost your card please report it to Access Control straight away. Students can also order a new card online.
