Fees and Fines

UB TU Berlin / I. Peter, CC BY 4.0

Overdue Fees

Please remember to return or renew items on time. Overdue notices are often sent already in the night after the due date.

Overdue items will incur fines:

  • EUR 2 per item for the 1st overdue notice
  • An additional EUR 5 per item for the 2nd overdue notice
  • A further additional EUR 8 per item for the 3rd overdue notice

( = EUR 15 in total per item after the 3rd overdue notice)

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

With a fine of over € 25.00 your account will be blocked and you will be unable to b orrow or renew items.

If fines are overdue more than 3 months, you will also not be allowed to borrow or renew items even with fines less than € 25.00. 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.
