King's College Libraries

As part of the Courtauld’s strategic partnership with King’s College London, from September 2022 all Courtauld students will be able to access the resources of King’s College Libraries by collecting a King’s College ID card.

  1. Those Courtauld students who are studying a King’s module have been instructed to collect their King’s ID cards from any campus.
  2. Those Courtauld students who aren’t studying formally/taking any modules with King’s, and would like access, have been instructed to collect their ID cards from the Strand campus only.

King’s Libraries have produced an Online Library Guide to help students to get acquainted with the resources and services on offer.
