Library services: essentials

Library laptop loans

The library has around 90 laptops that are available for students to borrow for a one-week non-renewable loan. To use a laptop at home, you must first have logged in to it once while on campus. You can shut it down after that initial on-campus log-in. There are two self-service laptop lockers that allow you to borrow or return a laptop at any time the library is open. One locker is in the library foyer (floor 0A), and the other is in floor 0C. 

Terms and conditions

By borrowing a laptop you agree to the following terms and conditions:

  • The laptop is loaned for one week only. Laptops will be renewed only if there is plenty of availability. I undertake to return the laptop on time to ensure fair access for all Solent students.
  • The laptop is loaned to me in my status as Solent University student or staff, and the loan is only valid for as long as I remain at Solent.
  • I am responsible for damage to or loss of the laptop during the period of my loan, and I can be asked to pay for a replacement if a laptop is not returned or badly damaged.
