Registered patrons must have a valid UCL ID card or UCL Library Visitor card (plastic format) to be admitted to UCL IOE Library and the PC Labs - if you forget your card you cannot enter the IOE Library or the PC Labs
Applying for UCL Library Visitor card - during busy periods it will take us one working day to make new UCL Library Visitor cards for external visitors. So long as you bring the correct proof of credentials to indicate status & eligibility for library use with you, we will give you a paper ticket on your first visit giving you immediate reference access. If you would like your full UCL Library Visitor card made on your first visit (for example if you need to borrow books immediately) please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving us one full working day notice and we will pre-prepare your registration when possible to enable you to get your library card on your first visit.
