How do I borrow a laptop?

Student taking a laptop out of its lockerWe have 60 self-service laptops that students can borrow, which can be found on the upper ground floor.

Laptops must be borrowed and returned using your ID card. See our  how to borrow a laptop and how to return a laptop infographics for help using this service, or speak to a member of staff.

Work cannot be saved onto these laptops. When the laptop is closed or the battery runs out, all work will wiped from the laptop. We recommend saving your work on your free Onedrive account which is provided through the university or on another storage device (such as a USB). If you have any questions on how to use Onedrive please contact the IT team via Service Desk

Loans are for a maximum of 4 hours only. If you need a laptop for a longer period, you can return one and borrow another straight away.

Please note, if you return a laptop late, you will incur a fine.
