Access to Other Libraries

NYU Bobst

The Bobst Library is open to all current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff, as well as retired and emeriti faculty. 

For access, simply tap your Cooper ID card at one of the turnstiles. If your ID does not work for any reason, please email us at library@cooper.edu or stop by the library service desk, so we can investigate and work with the Campus Safety and Security Department to resolve the issue.

**New** NYUGuest WiFi Procedures for the Cooper Union Community:

To get NYUGuest WiFi access, members of the Cooper Union community must visit Bobst Library's Service Desk, located on the east side of the atrium when it is open. (Please note you may need to repeat this process weekly.)

You may still access NYU's online resources while you're at Bobst without the guest WiFi. To do so, use any publicly available computers on floors LL1, 5, 6, or 7.

Problems or questions with NYUGuest WiFi? Contact NYU Libraries IT (and make sure to mention you are a member of the Cooper community):
