Revealed: How Much Did Portsmouth Uni Students Spend on Library Fines?

Figures obtained by UniEel have shown that Portsmouth University students spent a respectable amount on library fines in the 2016-17 academic year. Students spent a total of £11,241.94. While this figure may sound high, it is actually one of the lowest amounts seen at British University’s. To put this figure into perspective, this equates to a spend of approximately £0.51 per student. This figure purely relates to overdue items too – other fines such as those related to lost/damaged resources, haven’t been included.

This amount will still come as a disappointment for students. While Portsmouth does offer a superb student experience, this additional cost can be frustrating! It should also be noted the University library makes a substantial profit on areas such as printing – something that isn’t included in tuition fees, unexpectedly. Students are urged to return items before their due date, which can help to lower the figure witnessed for the 2016-2017 academic year.

It is worth reminding again that this figure didn’t take into account other costs, mentioned earlier, like lost or damaged resources. All this after student’s pay £9,000 a year. While it can be both annoying and unfair when someone doesn’t return their book in time, it could be argued a lower fine is fairer on students. This figure could prompt discussion regarding the fairness of library fines. At least our library won’t be going anywhere anytime soon…
