Services provided

Based within the Sheppard Library at Hendon, we provide library materials, support and advice, to UK registered students and staff* who are unable to visit the campus on a regular basis or not at all, for any of the reasons shown opposite.

We aim to provide distance learners with a similar or equivalent service to students who are based on campus. The service provides library materials, support and advice, and includes:

Charges apply for some services.

If you live or work near Middlesex University's Hendon Campus, you may use the services available to all students on campus. Please note that you will need your student ID card to access the campus. If you did not receive an ID card following enrolment, please create a ticket to request one and attach a completed Student ID card application form along with a passport style photo. The card will be posted to you, so please ensure that you include your preferred postal address in the ticket.

Please note that we are unable to advise whether progression on your course as a distance learner is possible or not. To discuss this possibility, please submit an enquiry via the request changes to studies form.
