Before you arrive: Your Library PIN and you

You'll need your Library PIN to borrow and return books and laptops at our Libraries. You'll have a default PIN set up as part of the enrolment process, so why not change it to something more memorable? You'll need your King's username and password to complete this process. See the video below for instructions on what to do.

Don't have your King's username and password yet?

Look out for an email from King's with further details and self-service password set up.
