Information for UH-Downtown Alumni

As a graduate of the University of Houston-Downtown, you have continuing access to the library and its collections.

UHD alumni can

  • borrow up to 4 books at a time (see Loan Periods)
  • use print and media collections on-site
  • use library computers (2 hours per day)
  • use library databases and electronic publications on-site (2 hours per day)

An alumni identification card is required to borrow books and use library computers. Visit Student Accounting and Cashiers in the One Main Building, Room S-204, to get your alumni card for a small one-time fee. For details, see the UHD Alumni FAQs.

This Web site provides free access to the UHD Library Catalog and the List of Journals. Most electronic publications are available to alumni on-site in the Library Computer Lab. Due to license restrictions, remote access is available only to current UHD students, faculty, and staff. Remote access to similar resources may be available from your local city or county library.
