See tips on how to avoid fines and blocks. Return items in person or by post before they are due.

You may incur library fines from having overdue items, late return of recalled items or lost items on your account.

If you received an email about lost library items, return them as soon as possible. If you incur fines:

  • You will be blocked from borrowing and renewing items if you library fines and fees reach $20.
  • Items considered lost attract additional costs and fees.
  • You will be blocked from graduating if you have unpaid library fines.

UNSW students can pay fines online through your UNSW Online Account. Find out alternate methods for paying fines.

Contact the Library if you have lost a library book, cannot return your loans on time or you are not sure why an item is on your account.
