Laptop loan scheme
The Library has 36 laptops that are available for 4 hour loan during the Library opening hours. Please refer to Library opening hours for full details.
The laptops are issued from the self-service cabinet in the Library next to the Tech Zone. You need your student ID card to borrow a laptop. We strongly recommend you add a PIN to your ID card to prevent unauthorised borrowing. This can be done via your Library account
The scheme allows students to borrow laptops that act in a similar way to the networked PCs; you can connect to the University’s wireless network in order to access your H: drive, the internet and the self-service printers. You can use the laptops anywhere – you are not restricted to the Library – but please note, exceeding the loan period will incur fines of £5 per hour or part thereof. More information about fines and charges can be found in our LibGuide, Using the Library: Fines and Charges and the Library Rules
Please note - There can be a 10 minute connection delay until Wi-Fi reconnects if you take them out of the Library while connected to the Library Wi-Fi.
