Here you will find all information about renewing your books.

Ways to renew your borrowed items

There are several ways to renew your books:

  • By logging in
  • By e-mail: or by phone: 030-2536115
  • At the desks of all locations of Utrecht University Library

The due date

As a rule, the loan period is 28 days. Some materials have a loan period of 7 days or 14 days. You will be fined for not renewing materials on time (see fines system). Items which have not been requested by other borrowers can be renewed up to one year (each time for 28 days).

Do you want to keep the borrowed items for longer than a year? In that case please show your books at the service desk. Next you can start renewing the material again every four weeks up to a period of one year.
