All former students automatically join the Goldsmiths alumni community and can register to use the Library's facilities.
If you are a former student who left Goldsmiths within the last three years you can register for free alumni library membership.
Membership is free for the first three years from your finishing date and entitles you to:
· Access the library 24/7
· Borrow up to four books at a time
· Use the guest wifi
Please note that alumni members are currently unable to access computers or online resources owing to licensing restrictions.
If you are in debt to Goldsmiths, you will need to clear this debt before registering with the Library.
All other Alumni
All alumni who left Goldsmiths more than three years ago can also obtain alumni membership. There are two options to choose from, borrowing or reference membership.
A borrowing membership costs £30 for three years. This allows you to borrow up to four books at a time.
A reference membership is free and lasts for three years.
Both types of membership allow 24/7 access to the Library and use of the guest wifi.
How to register

1. Apply online and allow five working days for your application to be approved
2. When you receive a notification email from us that your application has been successful, please go to the Library helpdesk with proof of address (e.g., a utility bill).
3. After that, you will need to collect your alumni library card from the Security Office* in the Richard Hoggart building.
