Library laptop loans

  • Laptops are available to borrow from Level 1 of the library for use in the library only.
  •  Associate or discretionary users will not be able to use this facility.
  • You can borrow a laptop for up to 4 hours. If you need a laptop for longer you will need to return it and borrow another one. You will need your University card to issue a laptop to your library account. The laptop can be used anywhere in the library (but not taken out of the building) and will give you access to your files on OneDrive.
  • Laptops that are returned late will incur a charge of £2.00 per day.
  • All loan laptops will reset themselves when they are shutdown so make sure you have saved your work to OneDrive before shutting down.
  • Please note that you are responsible for the laptop while it is on loan to you. It must not be left unattended or loaned to anyone else as a fee may be charged for lost, stolen or damaged laptops. If you need to leave the library, please return the laptop.
  •  The laptop is issued without a charger and should only be plugged in when it is returned to the locker.

Should you require any help, please visit the Information or Reception desk on Level 1.
