SCONUL access

Depending on the time of year, our libraries have different opening hours. There may also be visitor access restrictions in place around the assessment and examination periods between April and June so please check before visiting. See below left for the latest opening hours.

The SCONUL Access scheme allows staff and students from other academic institutions, that are part of the scheme, to have access to Liverpool Hope’s Libraries. 

Part-time, distance learners, taught postgraduates, PGCE, academic staff and research postgraduate students

Visitor membership is offered to these categories which will allow you to borrow up to three items at any one time.

On your first visit, which should be during full-service hours, you will need to bring:

  • your SCONUL access acceptance email (obtained from the Library of your home institution when you applied online)
  • proof of your address e.g. header of a recent utility bill
  • your home institution student card
  • passport-sized photograph

Your SCONUL application will take 2/3 working days to be processed.

Due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to give access to IT facilities. If you are from a Higher Education institution that is part of the Eduroam scheme, you will be able to access WiFi from your mobile device. However, you must set up Eduroam on your device at your home institution before you visit Liverpool Hope. Please note, this will not give you access to Liverpool Hope online resources.
