Visitors Borrowing Schemes, Online Resources and Wi-Fi

Access to our Library Buildings

Please note that as we are currently updating our policies and procedures, information regarding Library Visitors services is subject to change.  For current information, please refer to our Library Visitor Information section in advance of each visit.

Our Library services are currently available only to current Swansea University Staff and Students, SCONUL Access members, University students from other institutions, and Libraries Together members over 18 years of age (under-18 year olds need to be accompanied by an adult).  You will be asked to produce identification to our Security staff upon entry of the building.

The Libraries Together Passport allows any current member of Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Powys and Pembrokeshire public library services to have free borrowing access at all public libraries covered by these areas along with free borrowing access at Swansea University, University of Wales Trinity St David, Swansea College, Neath Port Talbot College, Gorseinon College, and Pembrokeshire College.  Please visit your nearest public library branch and join the library if you are not already a member.  Ask for a Libraries Together passport stating which college or Higher Education library you want to join.  Take the passport along to your chosen library, and they will register you as a borrower.
