As MA students we can also use Cambridge University Library, called the UL, on West Road. It's a beautiful and calm publishing library - meaning it has every book ever published! Sometimes you may have to wait for a book, but, trust me it's worth it.
To get a readers' card, you will have to visit the UL (Cambridge University Library) with:
a letter from our admin office (proof of your student status),
your student ID card,
proof of your current address (i.e. recent gas/electricity bill).
You will receive your card straightaway.
Unfortunately, as it is a readers' card you cannot take books out of the library. Luckily, the Reading Room provides the most comfortable space, that the hours fly by when you're there!
