If you experience problems accessing VLeBooks this may be caused by your browser (Chrome, Mozilla, Safari or similar) storing your University of Roehampton login used for accessing academic databases. The easiest way to resolve this is to use a different browser for accessing ebooks at www.vlebooks.com. Copy this address to the address bar of another browser, for example, Internet Explorer or Edge, or any other (Chrome, Mozilla, Safari etc.) different to the one you have been using so far. If you experience any other problems accessing VLeBooks please refer to the 'VLeBooks access guide' PDF below.

To login, search for Roehampton, choose your campus (Birmingham, London or Manchester), then use your students number for the ID and your date of birth (DDMMYY) – for the PIN.
