Graduate Students

Access and borrowing privileges are provided to all currently enrolled graduate students who hold a valid Princeton University identification card (TigerCard) with photograph. Spouses, domestic partners and children (under 23 years of age) of graduate students who possess a family ID card are also granted library privileges. Continuance of Library privileges is dependent on observance of Library policies and regulations.

Continuing, non-registered Princeton University graduate students who wish to borrow books may purchase borrowing privileges for 50% of the standard borrowing fee for visitors. The fee for borrowing is set annually, in July. Contact the Access Office for more information.
