Laptop Loans

Borrowing a laptop

Laptops must be requested in advance using our click and collect service.  Please see our guide for more information:

Covid-19 Library services online and onsite 

Please note: If you have any blocks or overdue items on your record you will not be able to issue a laptop.

By using the system you are agreeing to the terms and conditions that apply to laptop loans (these are displayed near the machine so please do read them before making a loan). Loans are not transferable to another user.

Using a laptop

If you wish to borrow a laptop to take out of the library, please make sure you select the correct option from the lockers in the foyer.  Any deliberate attempt to take a library use laptop out of the building or to remove security identification/tagging may be regarded as attempted theft and will render users liable to disciplinary proceedings and/or reporting to the police.

If you have borrowed a laptop that can be taken out of the building, you must log-in to the laptop on campus before you will be able to use it off-campus.

Laptops must not be left unattended.  You are responsible for the laptop until it has been returned to the lockers and then removed from your library account.

Misuse of laptops may result in you being blocked from borrowing them in future. Fines may also be levied and charges will be made for the repair or replacement of lost or damage laptops or accessories.

When using laptops make sure you save your work to an external device such as USB memory stick. Work saved directly to a laptop will disappear when the laptop is switched off.

Returning a laptop

Laptops should be returned to the helpdesk in the Library foyer.
