As we continue healing after the impact of Hurricane Ian, many students may find themselves unable to return to campus after evacuating to other parts of the state. While classes continue, the FGCU Library wants to ensure you have the necessary resources to succeed. In addition to our digital catalog and services, we have partnered with other Florida university libraries to grant you access to their resources. Below is a list of the university libraries open to you and what services they offer.

University of South Florida:

  • FGCU students are welcome in USF libraries at their Tampa, Sarasota, and St. Pete campuses. USF has opened its general collection to FGCU students. Ask at the circulation desk about accessing their online catalog and through computer terminals as well as public WiFi.
  • The USF Library in Tampa is available for FGCU students from 6am-9pm Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm Saturday, and 12pm-9pm Sunday.

Florida International University:

  • Both FIU library buildings are open to FGCU students. 
  • The Green Library requires a visitor ID to enter, which FGCU students can request by showing their Eagle ID. 

University of Miami:

  • Four libraries are open to local FGCU students: ArchitectureMusic, and Richter in Coral Springs and the Rosenstiel School Library in Virginia Key.
  • A University of Miami ID is required to enter the Richter Library. To get an ID, register for access at the entry desk.
  • Pro Tip: the Richter Library fills up during the afternoons and evenings. Other libraries may be emptier during those times.

We at the FGCU Library hope for your success and will keep you all updated as access to university libraries change. If you need further information, contact these libraries directly or let us know and we will help you get the information you need.
