Old Borrow, Renew & Return: Books Returns

Book Return Service

DMU staff and current students

You are now able to return loaned items yourself, using the self return machine in the foyer of the Kimberlin Library.

You, or someone else on your behalf, can bring your books back to the library during our opening hours.

If you’re away from Leicester or need to self isolate, you can also post books back to us at:

Kimberlin Library
De Montfort University
The Gateway


Final Year Students

A freepost service is currently available for students who graduated in Spring / Summer 2020, during lockdown, to return their book loans if they are now not able to get in to Leicester to return books in person. 

Students who graduated in Spring / Summer 2020 should check their student email, as an email with a link to a collection service has been sent to your DMU email address. This will enable you to print out a label and take your books to a drop off point for delivery back to the library. This is a free of charge service being offered to final year 2020 DMU students.
