Emory alumni receive on-campus benefits

Please refer to Emory University's visitor policy to confirm the current availability of on-campus benefits listed below.

Do you have an Alumni Card?

It's easy to get one: request your card online. 

An alumni card and picture identification will serve as your ID for gaining access to the library and other alumni benefits, as allowed by the Emory University visitor policy. EmoryCard Services is currently not activating cards for access to campus libraries or to purchase a gym membership.

Alumni Card Benefits and Disclaimers

Library Access

While Emory alumni have privileges at most campus libraries, all online databases are not available to alumni due to licensing requirements. The alumni association offers access to premium information resources online through the online community.

Rose and Woodruff Libraries

These computers provide access to major databases, the catalog, the internet, and a variety of software packages. You will be placed at a station based on your specific access needs. To print from a library computer, you can purchase a print card from the Library Service Desk.

  • Are you off campus?  You may visit the library website, access the library catalog via discoverE, or contact the library regarding privileges or services by calling 404.727.6873.
