Items that have not been returned by this date will be considered lost and you will be invoiced for their full value. If items are returned after 30 June, these costs will be removed from your account but you will still be fined for late returns. Please contact the Library if you have any questions.

9. Computer access

Access to your university emails, P: Drive and Google Drive will expire on Friday 30 September 2016 (if not before), so ensure you have downloaded your work and set up a new professional email address. Make sure you give this email address to people who may need to contact you after you graduate.
