Alumni are entitled to continue to use the university's libraries. Membership is free for one year after graduating from your first University of Brighton course and thereafter graduates can sign up for external membership to the libraries at a discounted rate of £40 per annum – a saving of £30 off the normal rate.
To join, just visit your nearest university library and ask for a membership form stating that you are an alumnus of the University of Brighton. Unfortunately membership does not include access to online journals due to licensing restrictions.
