More options to return your Library books

Posted on 21 July 2020

We know that you’ve been wondering about how to return your outstanding loans to the Library. We’re now able to tell you about some options to get your books back to the Library. Thanks for taking care of them for us in the meantime!

Returning your books on campus

There are now two book drop locations on campus where you can return Library books:

  • Outside the Morrell Library on Campus West.
  • Inside the Ron Cooke Hub on Campus East.

Both book drops are available 24/7. We will empty the book drops regularly, but don’t worry if the items don’t get removed from your account immediately; you won’t receive any fines.

Returning your books through the post

You can also return your books using our free postal returns options:

  • If you’re based in the UK you can use our free Royal Mail Tracked Returns service.
  • If you’re returning books from overseas you can apply for a refund of postal charges.

You can find more information about each of these options on our Book Takeaway web page. When your items arrive at the Library, we will remove them from your Library Account. Don’t worry if your items are slightly delayed in the post; we will backdate the return to the date of postage.

Please contact us if you have any questions about how to return your books.
