I am a SCONUL student / staff from another university. What do I need to join and what access do I get?


Colchester & Loughton

To join us as a SCONUL Access student, you will need to bring your SCONUL Access confirmation, home university ID card, proof of address and photo ID e.g. driving license.

If you have been given band A, B or C access, once signed up you will be able to borrow up to 5 items from our main collection.

If you have been given band R (Reference) then you will be able to use the material on the shelf but will not be able to borrow.


If your home institution uses Eduroam wifi, you can connect to Eduroam in our libraries on your own device. 

If you don't have access to Eduroam, you can connect to the Essex Guest wifi.

Please see links below for more information on our Wifi networks


Walk in access to e-resources

We also offer 'Walk in' access to a selection of e-resources which are available on particular PCs in the library. Please see the link below or ask staff at the helpdesk for details.


Southend Campus

Unfortunately, we are not able to give SCONUL access at Southend. Books from the University Collection at Southend are available to be viewed by the general public and can be used on a reference only basis.
