While the Main Campus Library in New Castle is open to the public, a Wilmington University ID badge must first be obtained from Campus Safety. Please fill out the ID Card Application Form below to request a Wilmington University ID badge. 

Note from Campus Safety: You will receive notice regarding the status of your application within thirty (30) days of receipt of a completed background check. Wilmington University has partnered with Verified Credentials (QualifiedFirst) in order to provide background checks. The cost of the service is approximately $57.00. Applicants are responsible for the cost of the background check.

Library Borrowing
Obtaining an ID badge for Library facility use does not grant borrowing privileges. To borrow items from the WU Library, please login to the Delaware Library Catalog and use the Place Hold button. Items will then be available for pickup from your local Delaware Public Library.

Access to Research Databases
Community members are able to access our research databases by using a library computer within the Main Campus Library. A Wilmington University ID badge must be obtained first by Campus Safety in order to gain access to the Library.

Note: Access from off-campus is not available for Community members due to licensing restrictions.
