UCLA Students, Faculty, and Staff

All Other Library Visitors

All other library visitors can purchase a visitor BruinCard at the BruinCard machines in the libraries listed below.  The cost is fifty-eight cents, and the machines accept cash only. The cards are reusable, and value can be added to them at any library or campus BruinCard machine.  Visitor BruinCards can also be used for purchases at campus locations and more than twenty businesses in Westwood that accept the BruinCard.  However, refunds cannot be issued for any money left on a visitor BruinCard when the user is finished.
