During the vacation period we still recall books that have been requested by other customers.  As books are issued on a rolling 7-day basis, this would mean the automatic renewal would halt and you would be notified that you have 7 days to return the book to the library. 

If you return a recalled book after the due date, even in the vacation, an overdue charge of £1 per day will be applied up to a maximum of £15 per item.

If you have left Newcastle you can post items back to us and we will deduct the postage paid from any applicable overdue charges which may have accrued (please retain proof of postage for this).

If you do need to return your books via post, Philip Robinson Library items can be posted back to:

Book Returns
The Philip Robinson Library
Newcastle University
Jesmond Road West
Newcastle Upon Tyne
NE2 4HQ

If the books belong to the Walton Library, they can be posted back to:

Walton Library
Medical School
Newcastle University
Framlington Place
Newcastle Upon Tyne
