Loan Extensions

The loan period can be extended, as long as the title isn't requested by another student or faculty member, or there aren't any restrictions on the cardholder. Extensions can be requested in the student resource center, or by calling 02-629-1303 the day prior to the due date.

Late Returns / Lost Books (calculators, headphones etc.)

All material must be returned on time. Late returns will result in a fine and borrowing other books will be prohibited until the fine is paid. Damaged or lost books must be replaced either by paying the full cost of the book, or by supplying another copy that is in good condition.
