Goldsmiths Library welcomes visitors from the local community. If you are a resident over 18 in the Lewisham Council area, you may use the library to consult its resources.
Apply for a day reference pass at the Library reception desk. You will need to bring proof of your home address, such as a recent utility bill or a driving licence. A day pass will be issued to you which expires at 20.45.
If you have an ongoing need to consult the collections you can apply for a community user pass online.
Applications will be reviewed and can take up to 5 working days to process.
- If your application is approved you will need to take the notification email to Reception in the Richard Hoggart Building (campus map). The Reception is open from 07.00-22.00, Monday- Saturday.
- Concierge staff will take your photo and issue you with a Goldsmiths card.
You can access the Guest WiFi network.
We ask you to leave the Library by 21:00 each night.
Visits for School and Further Education Staff and Students
Teachers can request a visit for a small group of accompanied students studying a project that requires access to our collections or to introduce students to an academic library.
Teachers should contact Mark Preston (email@example.com) to request a Library visit and discuss their requirements. Please contact Mark at least 3 weeks prior to the date you wish to visit us.
School and further education students should contact their institution to arrange a visit.
We're unable to offer visits during our busy induction and exam periods in September, October, April and May.
