Return Senate House Library books on campus

There is a drop box on campus at the Depository (Building 39 on the campus map) where Royal Holloway staff and students can return books borrowed from Senate House Library. The drop box is located in the fence by the green gates at the entrance to the Depository site. There are a few things to note: 

  • The box is open 24/7
  • Items deposited will be taken off your account on the same working day
  • Fines money cannot be taken at the Depository, nor can fines disputes be dealt with there
