Off-Campus and Commuter Students Guide: Home

Welcome to UConn Library

UConn Library is here for all students. Whether you drive to one of our campuses, take the bus, ride a bike, or attend from the comfort of your own home, we have resources and services that can lead to increased success in your classes and provide you with the information you need. The library is more than a building with print materials on shelves. We have dynamic study spaces, electronic and print access to millions of resources, in-person and virtual assistance, loanable technology, and much, much more. Always know that however you get here, we're happy to help you!

  1. Looking for a place to study on your own? Have a group project and you need a space that has a whiteboard, display screen, and seating for multiple people? Maybe you just want some quiet time? We have spaces to match your needs! Check out our Study Spaces page for more info! 
  2. Forgot your phone charger or headphones? Need to borrow a laptop for a few hours? Stop by the iDesk and checkout our short-term technology rentals.
  3. Looking for a book or article for a research paper? Need access to business statistics? Have a streaming video you need to watch for class? The library has millions (YES, millions!) of resources available in physical and digital formats!
  4. Is it 11:00 PM and you just started a research paper that is due the next day and you need help finding sources? Did your professor direct you to some strange-sounding database and you have no idea how to find it? Ask a librarian for help! You can check out one of our helpful guides and/or tutorial, contact us over online chat, email us, or give us a call and we'll help you get the information you need!
  5. Does the library not have an article that you need, and the publisher's website is asking you to pay money to access it? Don't do it! Just because we don't have access to the resource doesn't mean that we can't get it. Use interlibrary services to request materials from libraries around the world to get the information you need for free.
