Settling overdue fines and debts
Overdue fines related to borrowing will automatically be calculated by the library for the opening day following the expiry. Calculation is closed when the book is taken back or the loan is renewed. Renewal does not exempt the reader from paying the overdue fine.
For Corvinus readers, every library fee (card fee, overdue fine, book compensation fee) will be charged to the Neptun account and can only be settled there, by bank transfer or SimplePay.
Closed overdue fines are charged at the beginning of the following week, the deadline of payment is the eighth working day following that date.
Please keep your payment deadlines. When applying for examinations, expired debts charged to Neptun will be a hindrance.
External readers can settle their debts in person by bank card or by bank transfer.
Lost or damaged books
You can report a lost book:
The Library informs the reader about the replacement cost by e-mail. After the 60th day following the end of the deadline the Library will declare the borrowed document lost, and will charge the compensation fee of the document on the reader.
