Once you’ve graduated and become our alumni, you can pick your Alumni library card that allows you to borrow books and media materials. An annual fee of $100 will be charged. The first year's fee is waived for HKUST Alumni Association members and HKUST BOC Alumni Credit Card holders.

Alumni e-Resources
This service provides alumni with access to selected databases at a cost-recovery annual subscription fee. The annual subscription fee (1 July - 30 June) to the Alumni e-Resources Service is HK$250, and the semi-annual fee (1 January - 30 June) is HK$150. A 20% discount off the subscription fee is offered to HKUST Alumni Association members and HKUST BOC Alumni Credit Card holders. Please remember to have your @connect or @alumni email account ready for subscription.

Due to the high demand for seating, access to the Library may be restricted to members of the University community or alumni holding a valid Alumni library card. Please check out the library hours for details.
