FE Students under-18

De Montfort University Library does not have a membership scheme for under 18s.  It therefore isn't possible to access our library as a location for personal study as an under 18.


If you have a particular research need to access our collection, so there are particular items or collections that you need to access on a short term basis, such as for a current assignment, you can apply for temporary reference access by emailing the Director of Library and Learning Services, outlining what you need to access and on how many occasions.
