Information for Visitors

We welcome visitors to the Library, including: members of other academic institutions; Brunel Alumni; organised visits from schools and colleges; members of the public; ORS members; Special Collections visitors; and academic collaborators. Please check the links below for details on these different categories.

Brunel University London is a member of eduroam (education roaming via the JANET Roaming Service). This service enables members from participating higher education institutions to connect to their home networks using Wi-Fi-enabled devices while they are visiting Brunel. Please ensure you register for this service with your home institution before your visit.

For the avoidance of doubt, except for academic collaborators during their time at Brunel, other categories of visitors (listed below) are not permitted to log on to Brunel network via Wi-Fi or a networked computer.

Due to licensing restrictions, we are currently only able to provide remote access to electronic resources to Brunel students and staff. However, visitors to the library who possess a valid pass will be able to access certain electronic resources, via the library catalogue kiosks on each floor, provided the licences permit "walk in" or guest access. If a licence does not permit guest access then visitors will see a message stating that access is denied.

To avoid disappointment, you should check with the e-Library team to see if a licensed electronic resource would permit guest access or not before you apply for a visitor's pass (please give at least one working day's notice). The following resources do not permit guest access: Bloomberg, Datastream, Eikon, ESDU,, Investment Arbitration Reporter, LexisNexis products, Mintel products, Passport, SAE Journals and Technical Papers, Safari TechBooks,, Westlaw.
