UTS Library

Fine Appeals

Initial Claim

If you were unable to return your Library items on time due to illness or other extenuating circumstances, you should fill out a Fines Appeal Form. You will also need supporting documentation such as a medical certificate etc, which you can upload with your form.

If you are a UTS student having serious difficulty paying your fine, please make an appointment with the Student Services Unit to see UTS Counselling Services or a Financial Assistance Officer.

If you believe you have been fined in error, you should fill out a Fines Appeal Form. If you have returned the Library material on time, you should fill out a Claims Returned Form.

Appeal on the Process

If you feel that the consideration of your initial claim has been incorrect, then you may appeal to the University Librarian under Rules relating to the Use of the University Library Section 18.10.
