Library fines and charges
We charge fines on all overdue library materials. Remember to return your items on loan before the due date to avoid being fined.
Please be aware that the due date on your items may change if another student places a reservation on them. We will email you if your due dates change, so it’s important that you check your Strathclyde email account regularly.
We are currently only charging fines on reserved items, at a rate of £1 per day.
|Loan type||Fine||Maximum charge per item (£)|
|Standard loan||20p per day||10|
|1 week loan||20p per day||10|
|Short loan (1 day loan)||50p per hour for all overdue hours||10|
|Reserved item||£1 per day||10|
If fines on your account total more than £10 you won't be able to borrow anything else until you have made a payment.
You can pay fines online or with a credit/debit card at the self-service kiosks on Level 3.
