Need to return books while the Libraries are closed? Use one of three remote book drops on campus:
1) West of the Perry-Castañeda Library in the one-way alley off 21st Street between the University Christian Church and the University Teaching Center (UTC). As you proceed south, the book return is on the left.
2) A second drive-up book return is located on the north end of campus. The return is located on the south side of Dean Keeton Street between Speedway and San Jacinto streets. It is accessible to pedestrians at street level between Ernest Cockerell Jr. Hall and Robert Lee Moore Hall (RLM) and to vehicles driving through the parking and delivery area behind RLM.
3) A third return is located in the central part of campus near the Main Building (the Tower). It is in the circle drive between the Flawn Academic Center (FAC) and the Main Building. The return is at the bottom of the steps at the west entrance to FAC.
Maps of these locations are available at:
