2 courses I was going to take that I will withdraw, I paid for the fees for the student activities, library services, etc... If I withdraw these courses, will I be able to still go to the library and pay for the services I did? I won't get a refund if I drop the courses because it's pass drop and add date. I still have the parking permit which will expire in August.

Your university probably has a refund policy regarding withdrawals. At a certain date you'll receive 80%, at another 60%, an yet another date 50% and so on--assuming that your two withdrawals will constitute a withdrawal from your college or university (meaning you aren't taking any classes).

I can't answer your other questions about use of facilities. It depends. Most universities have very lenient use of library policies since a university is a place that encourages people to conduct research.

You should check your university's policy. Where I am now, you would still be considered a student as long as you were enrolled in courses the prior semester. Where I used to be, students had to be enrolled in at least 2 credit hours to be able to use student services.

You took 2 classes and you dropped both ( W )? I have never been to a College library that checked your student IDs. That's impossible. Way too many students coming in and out. What do you mean by "and pay for the services I did" ? If you can use the other services, too? What else is there?
The only time they ever checked the student ID was at the gym. If they do not check it, just go. If they do check it, just ask the College directly. I can only think of the gym where they would check your student ID. Most other places do not.

Likewise, I've never been to a university that didn't require that you swipe your ID at the campus facilities--especially the library. Library resources are too valuable to allow non-students in.

Back to the original question, my university's policy is that withdrawing from all of your courses for the quarter would not invalidate your ability to use university services. Loss of privileges occurs after two consecutive semesters of no enrollment.

Check your student handbook.

My univ. library is open to non-students. You can use the resources--you just can't check anything out.
