While law students, faculty and staff are Seattle University Law Library’s main constituents, please note that the Law Library is open to all Seattle University faculty, staff, students, and alumni who are engaged in research or studies that require the use of legal materials. Circulation privileges are limited to Seattle University faculty, staff, currently enrolled students, or alumni who purchase library memberships.
Members of the general public can purchase a $5 day pass for access to the Library with no circulation privileges. Additionally, members of the general public have full access to the United States government documents acquired by the Library through its membership in the Federal Depository Library Program. All non-law school patrons must show identification at the Circulation Desk and complete the “Visitors’ Registration Form.”
During reading and examination periods, access to the Law Library is limited to law students, alumni, faculty, and researchers with specific collection needs. The Seattle University Law Library access policy is posted on our website.
If you have questions about access or unauthorized patrons, please contact the Law Library Circulation staff on the 2nd floor of the library. Campus public safety can also be contacted: x5990 (non-emergency) or x5991 (emergency).
