FAQs

Can I still use the Library on campus?

Yes! Firstly, you will need an Alumni Card (click here to order one). You will then be able to join the library for £20 and borrow up to six long loan items at a time. If you only wish to use the space to study in, you will not need to buy a library card but you will still need an Alumni Card.

Restricted loans are reserved for students only, due to the high demand for these items. If you are looking to access a specific book, we recommend that you look online at the catalogue before coming to the library. If the book is listed as an ‘overnight loan’, ‘three day loan’, or ‘one week loan’ you will not be able to borrow it.

If you want to bring your own laptop or tablet and require network access [link to network access info below] you can arrange this with the alumni office. If you are registered with Eduroam (opens in a new window), you will also be able to log into this network on campus.

Regrettably, there are no computing facilities available for alumni on campus due to licensing restrictions that apply to all UK universities, so you will not be able to access journals and electronic resources.

Contact the Library on +44 (0)1895 266141, library@brunel.ac.uk or tweet @brunel_library if you have any questions or special requirements. 

Why can't I use the computers and electronic resources in the Library?

Unfortunately, the licences universities have for computers and electronic resources are only valid for student use, so alumni are not permitted to use them.

Can I still use the sports facilities on campus?

Yes! The facilities are open to members of the public at various times.Full details can be found here, or you can email sports.centre@brunel.ac.uk or call the Sports Centre Reception on 01895 265305.

How do I get an Alumni Card?

If you would like an Alumni Card please email your name, your current postal address, year of graduation and your subject of study to alumni@brunel.ac.uk and we will post one out to you. Alternatively, if you are on campus, you can come to the Alumni Office to collect one between 9.30am and 5.00pm Monday – Friday.

How can I get a copy of my Transcript?

The University is receiving an ever-growing number of requests for degree transcripts, course marks and so on. This is not handled directly by the Alumni Office, but we are able to forward requests to the relevant people. Please email us on alumni@brunel.ac.uk including your name, year of graduation, telephone number and we will make sure the right person handles your request.
