You can return books using the return chute inside the library at the front desk, or next to the main entry doors. Please be aware it may take longer for books to be processed and removed from your library account, as we are quarantining items to ensure the safety of students and staff.

Students will be provided a prepaid envelope to return the items. This service is free, courtesy of the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). You will also be provided additional loan days for transit time.
