Enhanced COVID-19 Control Measures for All Library Visitors

With effect from 25 October 2021, all visitors to HKBU Campuses must have received their second vaccine dose 14 days or more prior to their entry to the campus. For those that do not meet this requirement, a negative COVID-19 test result from a Government-recognized testing route dated within the last 14 days must be provided.*

Please check the latest announcements on the Library website for any future update to these arrangements.

*Both the electronic and printed copies of vaccination records / negative test results will be accepted at Campus security checkpoints.

Please note that if you hold a SCE student card with a barcode beginning with an “X”, you are automatically granted library access and borrowing privileges. You need not make a separate application for Library access. 

Those SCE students without automatic library access may make an application to duty counter staff during service hours – please bring along a recent personal photograph as this is required for the Library Card.

For any enquiries regarding the eligibility requirements and other matters related to the service package, please contact us (3411-7444 / 

Submission of the completed application form and required supporting documents should be made within 3 months of receipt of the application by the Library. After that, any incomplete application will be discarded accordingly while the payment shall be forfeited to the University. To protect the personal data of applicants, the Library shall also dispose of the application record.
