  • Who can use the Library?

    Access to the library is restricted by University regulations to Koç University students, faculty administrative staff, retired faculty & staff, alumni, and family members of faculty and staff and to individuals or employees of organizations having paid memberships with the Library.

    Academic personnel and doctoral students from other Turkish universities, foreign scholars, and librarians from other institutions are welcome to make brief professional visits to the Library anytime during our normal hours of service. Advance notice of an intended visit is advisable, in order to avoid delay on arrival at the University’s Main Gate.

    After graduation, KU students are free to visit the Library and use the space and print resources available on-site. KU alumni may use the Library at any time during its service hours. An external membership, however, is required if an alumnus would like to borrow materials.
