Students

Limited Access Note

PUL is allowing a limited number of visitors with urgent research needs and a connection to the Princeton research community. To submit a request for consideration, please visit the EHS visitor page and complete the form linked on the right. Your sponsor must be a Princeton University faculty member, staff member, or graduate student. Please note that the Library will need to approve this form, not the sponsor's department head. Send completed forms to refdesk@princeton.edu and include the collections that are required to complete on-site research. Allow three business days for review of requests.

Special Collections is accepting appointments for non-Princeton researchers on a very limited basis. Visitors interested in researching within Special Collections must first contact the department through their Ask Us! form. Requests to visit Special Collections will only be considered through this form.


Access and borrowing privileges are provided to all currently enrolled students who hold a valid Princeton University identification card (TigerCard) with photograph. Spouses, domestic partners and children (under 23 years of age) of 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.

The length of borrowing privileges for students varies depending on the student’s matriculation status and the collection. See loan periods for:
