Guest Computer Accounts

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Computers in the library require users to login with a valid Carleton University account.  We offer guest accounts to users not currently affiliated with the University.

To register for a guest account, bring valid photo ID to the IT Help Desk or the Library Services Desk.

Cost and Expiration

Guest account are free and valid for the day.


Guest accounts can be used on most (but not all) library computers. A map of locations will be provided when you register.

If used for wireless access on a personal laptop, guest accounts will provide general internet access but you will not be able to access library databases.
