Visitors to the Library

Our primary aim is to support students and staff of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in all areas of their study and research but we are also happy to provide access to visitors. All visitors should report to the library help desk on entering the Library.

Visitors with Research Needs

Individuals who have research needs but are not currently members of the CUHK community may apply for the use of the Library with charges. Please refer to the webpage on Fee-based Library Membership for details. Please note that due to restriction of space, we cannot grant access to the CUHK Library to those only looking for a quiet place to study.
