Guest Services and Policies
Guest Access Policy
The Frohring Library is a private institution almost entirely funded by students' tuition, with a limited number of seats. Therefore, it is dedicated to serving the needs of the John Cabot University community: our students first and foremost, but also faculty, staff, alumni. Guests are welcome to use the facility and its resources, with some limitations. A first visit to the library is free, but must be arranged in advance by e-mail and take place preferably on a Friday. A photo ID is required to enter the premises. For further visits, guests must purchase a year-long pass for €200.00 or a 30-day pass for €50.00 (cash only).
The Library is not open to external users during Mid-Term and Final Exams in both Fall and Spring sessions. Days of restricted access will not count towards the 30-day total and the pass will be extended accordingly.
Access to the Library is granted during regular opening hours:
- Monday through Thursday 8:00 AM - 9:45 PM
- Friday 8:00 AM - 8:45 PM
- Saturday and Sunday: 12:00 PM - 8:45 PM
Guests are advised to check in advance the Library Opening Hours, which are also subject to changes during breaks and summer sessions.
Year-long and 30-day passes both include a JCU ID badge to access the premises (photo must be provided in advance by user), plus a wi-fi account to use with personal hand-held devices and library computers. Guests must show their badge at the Front Office, and stay in the Library area only. The Library reserves the right to refuse guest admittance in case of extreme overcrowding.
