Registration to Borrow

ULANZ registration can be done at the Library Service Counter on Level 2 of the Student Centre during opening hours. Please present your current staff or student ID card. Bring photographic proof of identity if your institution ID card does not include a photo. We will register you as a borrower at the University of Waikato using your home institution ID card. ULANZ borrower cards will expire on the 28th of February the year after the card was issued, e.g. if the card was issued on the 25th March 2012 it will still expire on the 28th Februrary 2013, or when a borrower ceases to be a current student or staff member at their ULANZ member university (whichever is sooner).

There is no fee associated with ULANZ registration.
