You can borrow books and other information materials to use in and out of the library for a specified duration. The following procedures and regulations apply:

  • To borrow books, one must produce their staff or student ID card for identification
  • Only bonafied students and members of staff of Dedan Kimathi University are allowed to borrow books from the University Library
  • Impersonation is NOT allowed


You are only allowed to extend one time the duration of the material you had borrowed from the University library and that is in cases where no one else has requested it.
