Our libraries are going 'Fine Free'


From 3 February we will stop charging fines for overdue books at all our libraries. We know you’ll continue to support each other by returning recalled books on time – find out more and other ways we’re supporting you here.

Continue to return recalled books so that your fellow students can access them

The books you borrow will automatically renew on your account unless someone else places a reservation on them. If the book is reserved by another borrower, you will receive a recall notice via email asking you to return the book by the due date shown on your account.

We want to keep things fair for everyone. We all rely on books being returned on time by another borrower every now and then. We are replacing fines with a new system to make sure our books are returned by their due date. Watch out for updates in Student News and on our socials for more details.

Supporting you through the current cost of living increase

We appreciate that the current increase in cost of living may impact you or people close to you in different ways. At Greenwich we are doubling the total funds available in our Hardship Funds, and in collaboration with Greenwich Students’ Union have developed a Cost of Living checklist with some useful tips, we share these and other initiatives to support you here.
