Campus Services

SFU Library

Alumni are eligible for some borrowing privileges at the SFU libraries. Your SFU student card is now your alumni card and should also work as your Library card.

  • SFU alumni have access to over 1.5 million books, thousands of journals and SFU librarians who are happy to help with your research.
  • Most online resources (e-books, journals and databases) are available at SFU library’s by using a work station and logging into a library computer.
  • Alumni borrowing privileges

Wi-Fi access

SFU alumni are able to use wireless service on campus using SFUNET, plus wireless services at other schools who participate in Eduroam. To access wireless on any SFU campus, simply connect to SFUNET and open a web browser. You should be directed to enter your SFU ID and password, at which point you'll need to enter your SFU Computing ID and password. Currently there are no traffic restrictions for SFUNET and it should support all wireless devices.

Note: Alumni who graduated prior to April 2009 may need to reactivate their SFU computing ID to access online services. This may involve registering for our email forwarding services.
