If you don't return your loans on time you will be fined:

  • £2 per day for standard loans (remember these are automatically renewed by the Library but if someone else needs the item we will email your University account and tell you when you need to return it by)
  • 50p per hour/part hour - Short Loans and laptop loans
  • 30p per day - Interlibrary Loans (the British Library may also charge for overdue items) 

If your fine is over £10 you'll need to pay some or all of it before you can borrow or place a reservation.  This also applies if your current fine plus projected fines on any overdues are over £10.

The Library reviews its fines and charges each year and we aim to keep them in line with other universities.
