This service is for students who are graduating in May. If you are not graduating in May, please see our answer here about returning or renewing materials.

If you are graduating in May, you can return your loans in several different ways. Whichever you choose, we’re asking you to fill out a form letting us know which way you’ll be returning books. This will help our staff to coordinate the return of materials to help keep them safe.


  • Drop off at an Amherst campus outdoor book drop
  • Drop off at UMass Amherst Mount Ida campus between April 22, 2020 and May 15, 2020
    • If you are located closer to the Boston area, you can drop off your items at the UMass-Amherst Mount Ida campus in Newton, MA at the Campus Security building between 9am – 5pm between April 22, 2020 and Friday, May 15, 2020.
  • Ship items to the Libraries
    • If the above drop off options do not work for you, you can request a return shipping label to mail materials back at no cost to you. You will need to request a label by filling out this form no later than Monday, April 27, 2020.


Please let us know how you plan to return your materials by filling out our form: https://forms.gle/WntAKaVdtd2sWJor6. You will need to log in with your UMass NetID and password. 

This form will help us to plan for the volume of materials returned at each site and is how we will know if we need to send a return shipping label to you.
