Fine Amnesty - Book Returns
With national travel restrictions lifted, we remind borrowers to return any and all outstanding library material.
Return all overdue loans in June or July and clear your account without paying any fines, no matter when they were due, be it March this year or 2018.
Now is your chance to wipe the slate clean with this one time offer!
We encourage all staff and students living in the Dublin region to bring loans back to a Return Facility in either library, when it is safe and convenient for you to do so.
We acknowledge that it may be difficult for some undergraduate students residing around the country to get loans back to us, now that the exams are over and their academic time with the university has come to an end.
To accommodate these students, we will be operating a free postal book return service in which we will send you a prepaid returns envelope to help with getting your loans back safely.
To apply, please email the Issue Desk of the library where your books were borrowed from:
Please include your DCU student number and your current postal address.
1st, 2nd, 3rd year students planning on continuing with their studies in DCU should hold onto their loans until they return in September.
Please note unlimited renewals are available via My Account for extensions over the summer. Information on how to renew loans is available here.
Post graduate students of all types should hold onto their loans and return later in the summer, when it is safe and convenient to do so.
Unlimited renewals are available via My Account for extensions over the summer. Information on how to renew loans is available here.
Students who may be based abroad and who have loans outstanding should contact email@example.com for assistance.
We encourage staff who are due to finish their contract with DCU or who have left DCU to bring loans back to a Return Facility in either library, when it is safe and convenient to do so.
Please note that fines remain suspended as a result of the Covid restrictions, so no charges will apply when any material is returned, regardless of when it was borrowed.
