Can people not affiliated with Bellevue University use the library?


Due to COVID-19, we are not currently accepting applications for Community User cards.

By paying for a Community User fee, inactive students who have not yet completed their degree, applicants who have not yet begun class, and other members of the community may have borrowing privileges for one year. Those who are able to provide proof of residence can purchase library access at two tiers:

  • Community User Basic (Household or Individual): $50.00 annual fee

Allows users to check out physical materials, including books and media. Excludes Kindles.


  • Community User Plus Online (Household or Individual): $100.00 annual fee

Allows users access to Community User benefits, plus full online database access and interlibrary loan services. Excludes Kindles and Gartner database access.

Inactive and prospective Bellevue University students will have the $50.00 or $100.00 fee credited to their account if they register for classes within a year of paying the fee and present the library receipt to the Associate Director, Student Accounts in the Business Office. Both Inactive and prospective Bellevue University students are eligible for individual cards only. Other community members may use the Library and the computers after inquiring at the Circulation/Reference Desks for a guest login at no charge and for an unlimited amount of time. However, Bellevue University students do have priority over non-paying community members. Please consult the Community User Procedure for more information.
