Postal Loans

The Postal loans service is available for current Warwick staff and students living in the UK or the Republic of Ireland only. The service does not currently cover Alumni members or external members of the library.

Only Standard Loan books may be borrowed. We cannot send Reference, 3 Day Loan, Short Loan books or DVDs. We are also unable to send books if they are required by other borrowers, as standard loans automatically change to 3 Day Loans when holds are placed on them.

The postage charges are as follows:

  • £3.50 for packages weighing under 2kg
  • £6.50 for packages weighing over 2 kg
  • The charges will be added to your Library record as a miscellaneous fine, to be paid next time you visit the Library. Alternatively, you can pay online using a valid credit or debit card
  • Postal loan requests can be made using the On-Line Request Form »

The address to return books to is:

Resource Delivery
The Library
The University of Warwick
Gibbet Hill Road

WBS students based at The Shard may request books from the Main Library stock to be sent to The Shard using this service.
