Here is a list of frequently asked questions and their solutions

How can I access Wi-Fi in the library?

To access Wi-Fi within the library one has to log in using the same credentials they use to log into their students portal. For a first time user, the laptop has to be configured by the library or ICT staff.

Can I access e-resources off-campus?

Yes. Enter the following URL on the address bar and log in using the student’s portal credentials ezproxy.spu.ac.ke.

What’s the process & requirement for registering with the library in order to start using the library services?

The records of registered students are directly uploaded into the Library Information system and therefore for a student to access the library, he/she needs to come with their student ID. In a case where you don’t have one you can come with your national ID and admission letter, until the student ID is provided to you.

Can I renew a book when off campus?

Yes, just write an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and request for the book(s) to be renewed. In your email indicate your name and admission number.

Once the book has been renewed, you will be notified together with the due date through email. However, renewal can only be done once.

For how long can I borrow/use the library laptop?

The library laptop can only be used within the library for four hours, and when the demand is not high one can renew for another 2 hours.
