Student Borrowing

Borrow from the Library

Wheaton College graduate students and undergraduates can borrow at the circulation desk by showing their current Wheaton College ID card. Items in remote storage need to be requested.

  • Special program students may need to have their ID card activated or renewed by a circulation supervisor.
  • Students enrolled in Wheaton courses but living away from campus should see the Students at a Distance page.
  • If you have completed course work for a graduate degree, but still need library access while writing your thesis or dissertation, your borrowing privileges can be renewed by a circulation supervisor. Email or call 630-752-5610.
  • Student borrowing privileges end when you graduate. To borrow after graduation, you may obtain an Alumni account
