Alumni borrowing

QUT alumni who have graduated from an award course can borrow hardcopy books from the Library in person, free of charge, with an alumni borrowing card. Former QUT staff members can apply for community borrowing.

Important information

Applications are not processed in person at the Library. If you would like to borrow, you must apply online prior to your first visit to the Library.

What does alumni borrowing include?

Apply for or renew your Library borrowing card

Library cards are valid for 5 years and can be renewed after this time. After your application is processed, your card (including instructions on how to login to My Library (Alumni)), will be mailed to you within seven working days.

If you would like to borrow books and other hardcopy items from Kelvin Grove or Gardens Point libraries please apply for or renew your Library borrowing card. Note: this is not the same card as an alumni card. If you are looking to obtain an alumni card in order to access alumni benefits and discounts please contact the Alumni Office at
