If you have graduated from the EUI less than six months ago, your Library user privileges are still active.
If instead you are not a recent graduate, you will need to plan your visit and Library research in advance. If you have not activated an email account in one of the alumni domains, you should do so 3 to 5 days prior to your visit. Once you are at the EUI and have an active alumni email account, you may request the EUI card at the Badia. There is a 5€ processing fee for the card, and they must be picked up in person at the Badia Reception Desk (Monday to Friday, 11.00 - 12.30 in the morning and 14.00-16.00 in the afternoon)
Once you have your card, you may enter the Library.
If you choose not to activate an alumni account, you may apply to the Library as an external user following their procedure (allow at least 10 days for processing).
