Revealed: How Much Did Imperial College London Students Spend on Library Fines?

Figures obtained by UniEel have shown that Imperial College London students were very well-behaved in the 2016-17 academic year in terms of returning library books on time. Students spent just £2,849.00 in library fines for the entire year. This figure is well, well below the average figure for library fines at UK institutions. To put this figure into perspective, this equates to a spend of approximately £0.17 per student. This figure purely relates to overdue items – other fines such as those related to lost/damaged resources, haven’t been included.

This amount could yet be disappointing for students. While Imperial College is well-known for offering a great 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 the all-important library is in good shape!
