Library membership is available for all graduates with an Alumni Network Sticker. In order to activate the library membership, you will need to visit the library with your student ID card and Alumni Network sticker.

When activating your library membership, you will be required to pay a one-time donation of AED 157.50 to purchase a book for the UOWD library. This amount includes 5% VAT. To borrow books from the UOWD Library physical collection, a deposit of 500AED is required, payable at UOWD cashier’s office. Once all the borrowed materials are returned, the deposit can be refunded.

Alumni library membership conditions are generally the same as those outlined in the library brochures, though some specific terms and exclusions apply. The basic principles are outlined below.


  • Alumni members are entitled to borrow two (2) items at a time and may renew items twice, although reserving items and borrowing from the Closed Reserve Section is not extended to alumni library members at this time.
  • The UOWD student card (with alumni sticker) must be presented when borrowing items and the card is non-transferable. Fines apply for late returns and failure to pay outstanding fines will result to suspension of Library borrowing privileges.
  • You must keep the library up-to-date with your address and contact details and if at any time the Library cannot contact you using the personal details you provided, your library membership will be terminated and all fees will be forfeited.
