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 so 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. Maps and directions are available on our How to find Cranfield page.

We also recommend you check Library Search to see what we stock and ensure that your visit will be worthwhile: 

Members of the public

You are welcome to use the libraries for reference purposes, although you will not be able to log in to our network or IT facilities.  


Students from other universities

If you are a member of the SCONUL Access scheme, you are able to borrow up to three six-week loan items from the Kings Norton Library on the Cranfield campus.

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 wireless service then you are welcome to access the internet, and your own library's electronic resources, via your laptop from our campus. 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.

Find out more about using our Library services on our SCONUL Access scheme web page.
