Walk-in user scheme

Loughborough Campus

The Pilkington Library in Loughborough has desktop PCs and printer-photocopiers available for external users and University alumni to use. The Library issues one-day walk-in passwords for this purpose. To obtain a walk-in password, you will need to bring some form of photographic ID, and sign the agreement to abide by the University's IT Acceptable Use Policy when you visit. Visitors can sign in during periods when the Library enquiry desk is open. Please see our opening hours to see when the enquiry desk is staffed.

Walk-in passwords are limited in number and the Library reserves the right to withdraw this service during peak times. We are not able to guarantee access to a PC during busy periods. Walk-in passwords provide access to the Microsoft Office suite of applications, the internet, and a selection of the Library’s online journals and databases where licences permit. Access to the Library's online resources are provided solely for private study or non-commercial educational purposes.

There is a charge for printing and photocopying. Scanning documents is free of charge.

London Campus

Walk-in access to the London campus library is available to members of the SCONUL Access scheme. This does not permit access to computers at the London Library. Visitors should sign in at the London reception desk before visiting the Library on the second floor.

Wi-Fi access for visitors

Visitors from other Higher Education institutions and SCONUL Access users should be able to connect to our wireless network on campus providing their home institution is a member of Eduroam. Eduroam allows students and staff from participating institutions to securely access the Internet from any eduroam-enabled institution.
