Services for alumni & visitors

Alumni and other visitors are welcome to use the Library spaces and the physical collection for private study. Alumni and visitors can register to borrow from the physical collection (fees may apply).

Licensing restrictions mean that Bond University Library is unable to provide Alumni and most visitors with access to the Internet and electronic resources available to current Bond University students and staff. However, visitors from participating institutions can use Eduroam. For information on freely available resources take a look at the Alumni Library Research Guide.
