Fees & Payment

As a borrower, you always borrow books for free at Chalmers library. However, if the book or books you borrow are late, you have to pay a late fee. If you have lost a book, you must also pay a replacement fee. In other words, it is good to keep track of the loan period!

Late return and lost books

If borrowed material is not returned on time, the library sends reminders by e-mail. We send out 4 reminders over the course of three weeks and then we consider the material to have disappeared. You then have to pay a standard fee of SEK 600 and a late fee of SEK 200 for each book. When you receive the last reminder, you will be blocked from further loans as well as requesting books until the fee or fees are paid. If the book is returned, you only need to pay the late fee of SEK 200 for each book.


Payment is made in the Chalmer's web shop. Select the option "Chalmers Library - Fees" to get to the payment solution. You will also find the link in your last message from the library, i.e. when you have a fee to pay.


If you have questions about your late fee or lost book, you can always contact the library at
