- More details about your research;

The maximum length of the membership is three months, renewable, and access can be limited to off-peak times (after 19:00 during the week, all day weekends and during vacation).
Access rules for members of the general public are relaxed during special occasions, including vacation times, Welcome Week, Moving In Weekend, open days. For more information get in touch with the Library.
24/7 access restrictions
Due to increased demand for study spaces and resources by our staff and students, access to the Mile End Library will be restricted during the examination period between Monday 17 April to Friday 26 May inclusive. Please note that access at our Whitechapel and West Smithfield libraries remain unaffected.
Existing membership will be temporarily suspended and new membership applications will not be processed during this time.
