Can I use the library if I don't go to U of T?

At this time, U of T Libraries are closed to members of the public. They are only open to current U of T students, faculty, and staff. Alumni privileges are described here.

Library buildings & collections

Most U of T libraries are open to the public. To borrow books, you will need a U of T library card

Robarts Library's book stacks (floors 9-13) are closed to the public unless you have a U of T library card or stacks access card. Without one of those, you can still use LIRA workstations that will give you access to the internet and our online resources. At other libraries, please visit the service desk for more information.

If you are currently associated with an institution that participates in eduroam, you can access that wireless network.

We are unable to provide off-campus access to online resources to anyone who is not a current U of T student, staff, or faculty member.
