ESCP Europe students using the library in London

Using the Library


Students may borrow up to ten items at any one time.

  • Up to five books; and
  • Up to five journals, newspapers or DVDs

Academic staff may borrow a maximum of 100 items.

  • 50 books
  • 50 periodicals or other items

Most books are lent for two weeks. However, books from the Reading List Collection, the Careers Collection and DVDs are only available for seven days at a time. Journals and newspapers are lent for one day only. Some items are kept in the library for consultation on a reference-only basis. Return dates are clearly stamped on items when they are issued for loan.


You may renew your loans provided that another library user has not reserved the items you have. To renew books, simply bring your student card to the library desk. If you cannot come to the library in person, loans can be renewed by phone or by email (see contact details). You do not have to bring your books into the library to renew loans unless they are overdue.


If the item you require is currently on loan to another borrower, please ask a member of Library staff to reserve it for you. When the item requested is returned to the Library, we will contact you and hold it at the library desk.

Please note:

  • You are unable to make reservations on items that you already have on loan
  • Reservations are allocated in the order in which they were placed
  • When returned, items are held until closing time on the next full-service day
  • Library patrons will receive an email to let them know when an item is available for collection
  • Items remaining uncollected by the date specified will be returned to Library shelves or passed to the next borrower on the reservation list, where appropriate
  • Items cannot be requested for a specific date

Overdue Loans Policy


Late returns will lead to the suspension of the user’s borrowing privileges for a period proportional to the number of overdue days.  As the library holds limited stock, it is important to us and to your fellow students that you bring your books and periodicals back on time. 

No further loans are issued to students with overdue loans.

Wherever possible, the Library sends out overdue reminders by email. However, we are not obliged to do this and the service can be disrupted without warning.

Overdue loans should be returned within two weeks. Students who do not return overdue loans within two weeks will have their intranet accounts suspended. Furthermore, students who have outstanding loans at the end of an academic term will have their exam results (and degree qualifications) withheld until library items have been returned. This is School policy.

All lost Library stock must be paid for in full by the borrower concerned. If you think that you have lost an item of Library stock please inform Library staff as early as possible.

Group Study Room

The Library has a new group study room available for students to use. This room is for group study work, and not for individual study. Students are encouraged to talk and discuss work-related topics.

In order to book this room, please come to the library desk, or contact us by email, or by phone. It can be booked for up to 2 hours, and is located directly above the library.

Please do not use the room for non work-related discussions however, and be mindful of fellow users in the library.

A minimum of 3 people are required to book the room. Please be aware that during the exams, the study room will not be available.
