Students, faculty, and staff in the UH system must present their UH system ID card to borrow library items.  Your university ID card can be used to borrow materials at any UH-system library.

Cards for UHCL students, faculty, and staff can be obtained from the Student Life Office located in room 1.204 in the Student Services building.  They may also be obtained at UHCL Pearland in room P152.

Your Library Account

Log in to your library account to view your current checkouts, renew materials, or place holds on items.

Log in to ILLiad to view your requests for books and articles from libraries outside the UH system.

Return Library Items

You can return library items at:

  • The Neumann Library circulation desk
  • The UHCL Pearland Campus Library service desk
  • The book drop located next to the Neumann Library entrance
  • The book drop located outside the Bayou Building entrance closest to the student parking lot
  • Any other library in the University of Houston system

-Items must be returned in the same condition as when checked out.

-Do not write or highlight in books, fold pages, or remove pages.

-Borrowers are financially responsible for damage that occurs to the item while it is checked out to them.

-If you notice damage before checking the item out, please bring it to the attention of library staff.  The damage will be noted in the item's record, and you will not be held responsible for the damage upon return.
