Chatham Associates

Chatham Associates are primarily folks who share a Chatham residence with a Chatham student or who live in Chatham housing but attend another university.

Chatham Associates are welcome to browse our print collection and read what they'd like inside the JKM Library building. 

We do not offer any borrowing privileges to Chatham Associates. They may use the library space but cannot reserve rooms or check out keys.

If a Chatham Associate has a mobile device on which they'd like to access the Chatham WiFi, please ask at the Reference Desk for the guest log-on.

If a Chatham Associate is a student at another university, she or he will need to use the library services and resources there.

If a Chatham Associate is in need of library resources and is not a student elsewhere, refer she or he to the public library: http://clpgh.org/
