The Psychology support guide provides information for undergraduates, graduates and researchers in general in the field of Psychology.This guide introduces you to the different information resources and associated activities in the academic environment.

 Where are we?

Psychology is taught on the Pietermaritzburg and Howard College. Each campus has a physical library where relevant books, journals, theses and other resources can be located. Online access is available on and off campus to a wide range of resources.

For off campus access you will need to authenticate yourself first with your university lan login and password. Not all databases provide off campus access. It is best to access the University site via Firefox.

Physical closure of UKZN libraries

Libraries are open 24 / 7.

Closed daily 12 pm - 1pm for sanitising   

Most staff continue working remotely and business communication will continue as per lockdown regulations. Librarians remain available to provide virtual support for teaching, learning and research. 

Browsing of the collections will now be allowed, however, a book retrieval service is offered. Users may submit requests for circulating material. Books may be returned to the Issue Desks or Book drop boxes. Users who do not have permission to access campuses are requested to keep the items until campuses re-open. All items on loan will be renewed and library fines for overdue material will be waived.

Contact the library on:

PMB 0332605258; HC 0312602323; West 0312607390; Med 0312604261; Edge 0312603467


If you are using our library resources from outside the university please click on Off Campus Access to be able to access those resources that are available beyond campus. Go to Resources, then Off Campus Access. You will then need to login with your UKZN login and password.
