Services for Law Alumni: Registration & Building Access

Please visit the Pappas Circulation desk with your alumni card to register for law library use. Staff will update your record to reflect your new status and confirm your address and contact phone number. Upon registration, law alumni may use all Boston University libraries and law library computing areas.

Boston University provides generous library privileges to alumni. Other institutions offer limited privileges and therefore we are unable to provide access to libraries outside BU.

Proxy Access

Researchers conducting research on behalf of registered law alumni may gain access to the law library by presenting a letter on the alumni's letterhead stating the dates of use and the general scope of the research. The letter must include the alumni's BU ID number.

Proxy access is restricted to the Pappas and Annex library areas.

Building Access

The law tower building hours are 7am to Midnight. A card swipe entry system is in place from 8pm to midnight. Alumni who need access after 8pm should contact the facilities manager at 617 358-2300 to obtain a card. We look forward to having you visit the library. Circulation staff and Reference librarians are here to assist you in finding materials and making your research productive.
