Alumni, Guests, and Visitors

Alert icon.

All library locations are open and providing on-site library services but due to health and safety protocols access to our buildings is limited to current Rutgers students, faculty and staff only.

Rutgers alumni and senior auditors can register as guest borrowers. 

Guest borrowers may check out up to 25 books, for up to 6 weeks (unless requested by another patron). Guests aren't eligible for off-campus access to our subscription databases, but may access them on-site at any Rutgers library.

Registering as a guest

Most alumni and senior auditors will use NetID and their RUID card to access library services, but you may be assigned a barcode and password to access library materials if you are not eligible for NetID.

Alumni can bring a Rutgers Alumni Card to any Rutgers library information desk. If you graduated less than a year ago and don't have an alumni card yet, a photo ID is sufficient.
