Information for visitors

If you do not study or work at Cranfield, you are still welcome to use our libraries. 

All visits are by appointment only and restricted to our staffed weekday opening hours. Please contact us to arrange your visit and ensure we will be open. We will arrange a visitor permit for you, and you will need to call in at our Main Reception when you arrive. 

Members of the public are welcome to use our Kings Norton Library and Barrington Library for reference purposes, although you will not be able to log in to our network or IT facilities

Students from other universities are welcome to use the Kings Norton Library via membership of the SCONUL Access Scheme. You will be able to borrow up to three six-week loan items. Membership of the scheme does not entitle you to use our electronic resources or have general use of our PCs. However, if your home institution is a member of the Eduroam service then you are welcome to access the wifi, and your own library's online resources, via your laptop. If you need instructions on how to configure your machine to link to the Eduroam network, you will need to contact the IT department of your home institution.
