If you’re leaving uni for the summer or have finished your course – here’s what you need to know!

 

 

 

Do the libraries close over the summer? No! We’re open every day of the year 24/7/365! Just remember your SHUcard. And if you need help we’ve got that covered too… You’ll find Helpdesk opening hours and the different ways you can get in touch here. If you need help with your academic skills here’s the weekly schedule for The Bridge – it’s above the café in Adsetts.

Where can I access to books over the vacation? Are you going home for the summer or if you live in Sheffield – do you have friends at other unis that are coming back to Sheffield for the vacation?

Then SCONUL Access might be the answer. It’s a scheme which allows many university students to borrow books or use books at other libraries in the scheme across the country. Find out more on the SCONUL Access site.

If friends are visiting you in Sheffield they may find our library visitor guide useful.

Can I connect to WiFi? Are you planning on visiting another institution over the summer – or have friends from other unis wanting to use our libraries?

Eduroam could be the answer. Check out participating universities and how to connect here

My course has finished, what happens to my IT account? You can continue to access IT facilities until 31st July or until the Faculty Office notifies us you have completed – which ever is sooner. Here’s what you need to know

You may also be interested in exporting your contacts from your university email – here’s how

And finally there’s Alumni Connect – read about the benefits here

Have a great summer everyone!
