The University of Leeds accrued the most money from overdue books, collecting more than £211,000 in fines since the 2014/2015 academic year.

Leeds Beckett, which collected almost £150,000, came in second place, while Sheffield Hallam University was third with fines totalling £103,539 – a sharp contrast to the neighbouring University of Sheffield, which scrapped library fees in 2014.
