You can return books in a number of ways.

In person:

  • Using the self-service machines on the ground and second floor
  • Using the returns box outside the Library. This is open 24/7 and can be found at the front of the building to the right of the front doors

By post:

If returning by post you will need to pay the return postage, securely package and address them to:

Library User Services
Library Services
Aston University
Aston Triangle
Birmingham
B4 7ET

Books may be returned by courier or post with a guaranteed return within 2-3 days. We will consider the postage date to be the return date. 

Late returns

If a book is overdue AND reserved by another student, you will be charged £1.00 a day for each day overdue.

If you are unable to return a book due to sickness or being abroad, send us an email at library@aston.ac.uk, phone us on 0121 204 4525 or contact us on our live chat.
