The University of Kansas Libraries
Billing and Payments for Library Charges
All library borrowers who have accrued library charges will receive a Fines and Fees Notice from the library, usually via email. Unpaid charges currently payable at the library also appear in My Account, accessible from the Library Catalog. Charges do not appear in My Account until an item has been discharged or is declared lost when it is more than thirty days overdue.
Charges Due at the KU Libraries
Payments may be submitted in person to the Circulation Business Office at the Watson Library Service Desk between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Cash, checks, and credit/debit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express) are accepted. Credit/debit cards are accepted for in-person payments only.
Make checks payable to the University of Kansas and include your 8-digit barcode number or 7-digit student number on the check.
