Where can I return items on campus? What if I am off-campus? Why are items I've returned still showing up on my account?

Returns may be made at any library location during our posted hours, or at our external book drops at any time:

  • behind Fenwick Library on the Fairfax campus* Due to damage, the Fairfax campus dropbox is currently unavailable.
  • in front of Van Metre Hall on the Arlington campus
  • in front of Colgan Hall on the SciTech campus

*The Fenwick Library exterior, drive-up drop box is located behind the library (building #22 on the campus map), on Chesapeake River Lane off of Patriot Circle. The drop box is in a turn-around area past the One Stop Shop in Blue Ridge Hall (4599 Chesapeake River Ln) and near the Dunkin' Donuts in Tidewater Hall.

 

If you are unable to visit us one of our locations, items can be mailed to the following address:

Access Services
Fenwick Library
4400 University Drive, MSN 2FL
Fairfax, VA 22030

Please note: we quarantine materials upon return for up to 6 days prior to handling, based on recommended best practices. Returned, dropped-off, or mailed materials may not be immediately removed from user accounts. If you have a concern about your library account please contact fencirc@gmu.edu for assistance.
