Access & privileges

The University Libraries are intended primarily for the use of currently enrolled Seton Hall University students and currently employed faculty, administrators and staff. Others, such as Seton Hall University alumni, visiting scholars who are currently sponsored by an academic or administrative division, and public visitors, may also have access to the collections.

Please note that during midterm and final exams, guest access to the library's computers will be restricted to SHU alumni. There will be no guest access for non-alumni community users.

There is no guest use of computers from Tuesday February 17 to Friday March 6 and Monday March 16 to Monday March 23. 

General Conditions for Access

  • Patrons must check out Library items in order to take them out of the Library. If a door alarm sounds, they must return to the Circulation desk to make sure all items have been desensitized.
  • A valid SHU ID card or a visitor's pass, to be worn after guests sign the University Library Visitor's Book, must be available and/or visible for presentation to a member of the University Public Safety and/or to University Libraries personnel.
  • Persons using the University Libraries may be under video surveillance.
  • Persons using the University Libraries must not create a disturbance or exhibit behavior that interferes in any manner with normal, or other person's, use of the University Libraries.
  • Persons who bring minor children with them into the University Libraries must closely supervise them and remain with them at all times.
