Support for Students in Partner Institutions: Distance Learners

Distance Learners

Distance learners

As a distance learner student you have access to the library's resources and services. This includes online access to library resources as well as being able to visit any of the three campus libraries in person. Online access to library resources is via the My Learning or Student page in the student portal. To access the portal go to

If you live close enough to visit our libraries you will need to bring your Greenwich Gateway card to gain entry to the libraries, as well as your university username and password if you want to use the computer labs in the libraries. You are entitled to borrow up to 20 items. 

However, to give distance learners access to the library’s print resources we also offer you postal loan and photocopy services. You can use these to be sent books, or photocopies of book chapters or print journal articles, in stock in the library. The book request form can be found at  If you have any queries, please email Students must be resident in the UK or BFPO to have books posted out to them.

If you require an item which is not in stock in our library we may be able to obtain this for you through the Document Delivery service.

As well as our services outlined above you also have access to other university libraries through the nationwide library access scheme SCONUL Access. Registering with this scheme allows you to borrow a limited number of books from libraries in the scheme, which may be closer to where you live or work, or simply use them as a place to study. You apply online via the SCONUL Access web site.
