Click and Collect: Home

The click and collect service at Colchester allows you to request and pick up physical copies of the books you need for your studies.

The click and collect service allows you to book a 30 minute time slot to pick up physical items from Colchester.

You can select up to 10 items to pick up per slot and you can book two slots per week (each with at least 24 hour notice).

If you are rebooking after cancelling a previous slot, but require the same books, please include a note in the request form to advise staff of this. This will inform us that your requested resources have not changed, and that we simply need to transfer them to a new time. 

Full terms and conditions can found when booking a slot below.

Please use electronic resources in the first instance and avoid travelling to campus where possible.

Loughton only: If you require physical items from the collection at Loughton please use our new 'Choose your own books' service.
