UBC Library has a new Online Fines Payment System (paynow.library.ubc.ca), launched on Monday, July 26, 2021, which simplifies the process of fine payments for library users.
All UBC Library cardholders can now log into the new system using their Campus-Wide Login (CWL) or their UBCcard Library Barcode and PIN. Inactive library users will also be able access the system to review and pay their fines. While UBC students were previously able to pay their library fines online using Enrollment Service’s consolidated billing system, now they will have the additional option to review and pay their library fines using the new Online Fines Payment System. Fine payments can be made using Mastercard, Visa, and Interac.
The Online Fines Payment System makes it simpler for library users with outstanding fines of $50.00 or more to restore access to library services with the option to pay an automatically calculated amount to unblock their account. Library users can also choose to pay the total amount outstanding or a specific portion.
Library users with an outstanding fine from a previous academic year will need to pay the entire amount outstanding to restore access once their account is suspended.
