Use of the Library is conditional on observance of the Rules and Regulations. Users must familiarise themselves and comply with these, and with any reasonable request or instruction issued by library staff. Anyone failing to do so may be temporarily excluded from the Library and/or incur a fine.
The University Librarian or other member of staff on duty at the time has authority to require any person he/she considers to be in breach of the Library’s Rules and Regulations or otherwise behaving inappropriately to leave the Library immediately. A student who refuses to obey an instruction to leave the Library, given by a librarian or other member of library staff on duty at the time, may be summarily suspended from the University by the Vice-Chancellor pending further disciplinary action against them under the University’s Student Disciplinary Procedure.
The University Librarian has the right to refer any breaches by students of the Rules and Regulations and/or verbal abuse or improper behaviour towards library staff, other library users and the Library in general to the relevant Head of Department (or equivalent) or Dean of Faculty for dealing with under the University’s Student Disciplinary Procedures. Students banned from the Manchester Metropolitan University Library following such a disciplinary action within the University may be permanently banned from all of the other university libraries in the North West.
Students who fail to pay their tuition or accommodation fees, library or other fines, or to repay any loans made to them by the University within the time specified for so doing, will have their library facilities suspended until such time as satisfactory payment/repayment arrangements have been made and agreed by the University.
