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.
