Student Support Reference Card

If you are employed to provide study support to University of Plymouth students registered with Disability Assist, you can apply for a reference card for ease of access to the library via the internal barriers.

A reference card allows you to use the library for study and to refer to print materials. 


  • Membership to the end of the academic year: 31st August (renewable annually)
  • Entry into the Library building between 08:00 and 20:00 during term time.
  • Use of the library for study and to refer to print materials.


  • Applicants must be aged 18 or over (proof of age may be required)
  • No borrowing entitlement
  • No access to electronic resources, software, databases or other services licensed for the exclusive use of University staff and students, including the study room booking system
  • No access to the library PCs
  • Your card will not enable access to the building between 20.00 and 08.00.

To Apply

  • Bring your completed, signed application form to the library, together with valid current photographic ID, proof of current address and proof of employment
  • Once your application is approved, your card will be available for collection within 3 working days. You will be notified by email. We reserve the right to refuse membership.
  • Cards must be carried at all times – you may be refused admittance without your card.
