Enquiry of the Month: Accessing the Library after graduation?

Congratulations! Graduation is a great time of year – and we love a good cap-throwing, champagne party.


Royal Holloway alumni have access to the Royal Holloway libraries and may borrow up to 10 items at any one time; these must be either ‘One Week’ or ‘Normal’ loan items. At the moment, we can’t guarantee access to online resources, but email and let us know which resources you want to access – we might be able to help.

To join the Library as an alumni applicants should bring either their old college card, degree certificate, or a letter from their department, to the helpdesk in either library at Royal Holloway, and fill in an application form. Membership will be granted for up to 3 years.

You can also access your RefWorks account for a year after graduation – this means you can continue to save references, and export them into another reference manager to keep a record of your work. To find out more, contact
