You can return your items to any campus library or use the following after-hours return facilities.

Returning overdue items

It is important to return your overdue items to avoid having your privileges suspended and receiving an infringement penalty.

  • Items 1-28 days overdue (or less for short-term loan items): Library record and borrowing privileges will be suspended until the overdue item is returned.
  • Items more than 28 days overdue (or less for short-term loan items): An infringement penalty of $20 will be issued.

Paying a Library infringement

Having a Library infringement can prevent:

  • re-enrolment
  • graduation
  • access to results.

Pay your infringement to clear your record. You will then be able to re-enrol, graduate or access your results.

If all overdue items have been returned, library infringements can be paid at any Campus Library Service Desk or via the Library’s Online Secure Payment System.
