Laptop loans

The lockers for the laptops

Laptop return reminder

Anyone with a Library laptop will be contacted over the coming weeks. Please expect a call from our Library Services team with a laptop due reminder. Check the due date on your Library account and if no longer required return the laptop if possible.


What to expect: All laptops are thoroughly sanitised by our staff before and after use.  

  • Please come in and visit us at the Enquiry Desk during our staffed opening hours if you would like a laptop with a longer loan period.
  • We will retain a number of laptops to remain as 24 hour loans to accommodate the demand from students who are remaining on campus and/or regularly using the Library facilities.

Trimester laptop loans - Service update

All of our trimester laptops are now loaned out. However, if you'd like to borrow a laptop we can extend the loan time on our 24 hour laptops. Contact the Library to find out more.

We'll keep this web page up-to-date so please keep checking here for updates on the trimester laptops availability.

Borrow a laptop

Visit the Enquiry Desk instead of the usual laptop lockers. You must also return your laptop to the Enquiry Desk so one of our friendly staff members can sanitise it for the next user.

Your responsibilities

You are responsible for the laptop/charger while it is loaned to you. It must not be left unattended or loaned to anyone else. Fees will be charged for stolen, lost and damaged laptops and chargers. If you are aware that what you loan is damaged, please take it to the Library Enquiry Desk as soon as you notice the fault.

Courtesy email

A courtesy email is automatically sent to you whenever you borrow a laptop and charger. It lists the locker details (e.g. 'Locker Number AB 01: Library Laptop'), and the date and time the laptop needs to be returned.
