Fees and Fines

UB TU Berlin / I. Peter, CC BY 4.0

Overdue Notices Schedule / Overdue Fees

If the loan period is exceeded, the return of items will be reminded in writing. The first two reminders can be sent by e-mail.

Overdue Notices Schedule Overdue Fees
1st overdue notice on the 2nd day after due date 2 EUR per reminded item
2nd overdue notice on the 10th day after due date 5 EUR additional per reminded item
3rd overdue notice on the 28th day after due date 8 EUR additional per reminded item

Overdue interlibrary loan items will incur the same fines as above.

Interlibrary Loan

Overdue fees must also be paid if our reminder letter has not reached you.

With a fine of over EUR 25,- or if a 3rd reminder has been sent, your account will be blocked and you will be unable to borrow or renew items (according to our Rahmenbenutzungsordnung).

Also under EUR 25,- the library can register a block, if debts exist longer. 

Rahmenbenutzungsordnung (German only)

If fines are overdue more than 3 months, you will also not be allowed to borrow or renew items even with fines less than EUR 25,-. After you have paid these kind of fines, please ask circulation staff to unblock your account: Mon - Fri 9:00 - 19:00, Sat 10:00 - 18:00.

How To Pay Fees

Overdue fees can be paid by cash or bank / credit card at our pay machine on the ground floor. Payment by bank transfer is also possible (see details below).

Due to the library system transition, a partial payment of the charges at the pay machine is not possible. However, payment can be made by bank transfer.
