Returning Library Books to the SSL

Readers leaving Oxford before the summer, or coming back to Oxford to collect their belongings from Colleges, can now return their library books to a number of locations across Oxford, at specific times, including at the Manor Road Building from 12pm-2pm on Tuesdays starting tomorrow Tuesday 16 June.

When returning items to the SSL:

  • Please queue outside the Manor Road Building 2m from the person in front of you
  • When at the front of the queue, staff will ask you to place your books in the crates provided
  • Please do not leave your books outside the building while we are unstaffed and unable to accept returns, as they will be at risk of damage and theft. Full replacement costs will be charged for items left this way.

Other Libraries that you can return books to that are open at various times through the week are:

  • Radcliffe Humanities building
  • Saïd Business School
  • Weston Library
  • Old Road Campus building

Additional information can be found here.

A map showing the locations where you can return items to can be found here.

If you are unable to return your books at any of these libraries during their scheduled opening times, please email for advice.
