Library users are responsible for ensuring that all library material is returned in good condition, i.e., in the condition it was when it was checked out.

Books may be returned by the user 24/7 at the Self Return Station located next to the library entrance (outside) or during opening hours at the Self Return Station near the Circulation Desk (ground floor). You are advised to keep the receipt the machine prints.

All items must be returned (or renewed) by the due date. Please note that if you check out several items, the date of return may not be the same for all. It is your responsibility to return in time any borrowed material.

What happens if I return an item after the due date?

If you fail to return one or more items on time, you will be charged with a fine.

For Regular Collection items the fine amounts in €0,40 for each day the item is not returned.

For items Short Loan Collection, charge is € 0,40 for every hour after 11:00 on the return date.

Fines are calculated automatically by the system and apply to all categories of users. We would like to note that 50% of the revenue from fines is made available to the Student Welfare Fund.

Fines due to overdue returns cannot be waived and they remain outstanding until paid by the user.

If you fail to respond to your financial obligations towards the library, you may be penalized with temporary or permanent suspension of your user rights. Enrolled students failing to respond may not be allowed to receive their degree, in accordance with the Library Policies and Terms (4.5 Fines and Penalties).

You can pay the charge at the Circulation Desk (ground floor) or via e-payments.
