Extending the Loan Period

Your library account contains the overview “Borrowed media and extensions”. You can extend the loan period yourself online, but only if the medium has not been reserved.

Please note that the new loan period begins on the day you extend the loan – not at the end of the original loan period.

Extensions are not possible on

  • reserved media
  • semester loans
  • keys for single study rooms
  • locker keys

Nor can you extend a loan if the loan period has already expired, if your library account has been blocked or if there are any charges on it.

After the fourth extension, a further extension is only possible upon presentation of your library card at the Service and Information counter, by or by phone.
