What should I do if I'm leaving (students)?

Once your period of registration as a student has ended you will no longer have access to your University computing account ( When will this be? ) or University network facilities.

 Before your account locks you must:

  • Return all items you have out on loan You can check which these are by signing into Primo and clicking on My Account. You will be invoiced for any items that are not returned.
  • Clear all your fines and outstanding debts Please check My Account on Primo for any outstanding debts. You should pay all outstanding debts, including any invoices issued to you ( How do I do that? )
  • Be aware that your access to online library resources will end During your time as a student here, you have had access to a range of online library resources including e-books, full-text journal articles and databases via annual subscription from the University library budget. After you graduate your access to these resources will end. Please be aware that although you may have discovered these resources via a third party such as Google Scholar, the full-text will no longer be available via the University subscription.
