Free Library Book Tracked Returns Service

Loughborough University Library and Mailroom Service have joined forces to offer a free Library Book Tracked Returns Service to students who have left campus and who, due to Covid-19, have been unable to return their library books.

Please visit our Royal Mail site to download a Tracked Returns label. You can either:

- Download your returns label below and print it at home. Royal mail will email it to you too. If you don't receive a notification in your inbox please check your junk folder.

- Or Royal mail can print the label for you. Take your email and your packaged item to a Post Office® branch or Royal Mail Customer Service Point (CSP). They will scan the QR code and print the label for you. If you choose a CSP, check before you go that it can print labels. Check the location finder  and look for ‘Label printing service is available’ under 'facilities'.

Next, apply the returns label to the largest side of your item. Please make sure you don't place any tape over the barcode so it can be easily scanned

Drop your item at a Post Office branch or a Royal Mail Customer Service Point. You'll then receive proof of posting. And it is as simple as that.
