About postal loans

University of Nottingham Libraries are offering a new free-of-charge postal loans service for students who need access to physical resources available in our libraries. The service is available until 23 July 2021.

This service is available for current University of Nottingham students who meet any of the following criteria:

  • Currently living outside the local area (NG1 - NG11) or
  • Eligible for Enhanced Library Support or
