Information for Alumni

Campus closure

In an effort to reduce density and lessen the risk of coronavirus transmission on campus, Reed has limited its campus to current Reed students, staff, and faculty.

During this time, alumni are encouraged to use their local libraries. If there is a book that is only available at Reed, you can use the "Ship to" option when making a Reed item request. Alumni using the "Ship to" service are responsible for mailing books back to the library by their due date at:

Reed Library Circulation
3203 SE Woodstock Blvd
Portland, OR 97202


When off-campus, alumni continue to have access to JSTOR, a full text archive of scholarly journals in various disciplines. Learn more about alumni access to JSTOR. Note that our license agreements do not allow us to provide alumni access to ebooks from off-campus.

Electronic Theses Archive

Alumni can access a digital collection of senior theses through the Reed College Electronic Theses Archive. Participation in the archive is voluntary and access is currently limited to the Reed community. If you would like to submit your thesis to the archive, please visit the submission page.
