How do I get access to the University Centre?

You will need a University Centre at Furness College card for identification on campus and to access the library and computing facilities. Ask at the Furness Centre library desk – you will need your Cumbria card to fill in the application form.

Getting your University of Cumbria library card

As part of the registration process you will have been asked to upload a photograph. If you have done that your card will be posted to your home address. If you didn’t upload a photograph, please send a digital photograph to library@cumbria.ac.uk. Your card will then be processed and posted to your home address.

Download the Furness College Leaflet for more information on the services available.

Students based at Furness College can request books from the University of Cumbria libraries to be sent to their home address. You can then download a preprinted label to return the books using the Yodel direct service.

Post the books back at your expense to: 

Harold Bridges Library

Alternatively:

Take them to the University libraries at Lancaster, Carlisle or Ambleside. Do not leave them at Furness College as there is no longer a courier service to and from Furness College. Please email library@cumbria.ac.uk if you need any further information on getting or returning books.
