24 hour laptop loans

24 hour laptop loans are available from the Enquiry Desk at both the J. B. Priestley Library and the Management and Law Library. They are issued with a carry-case, power supply and cable and a USB mouse. You can also request to borrow a Kensington lock to secure the laptop.

Connect to one of our WiFi services to access University services, resources, some network drive stored files and for wireless printing.

In order to protect you and your data, you cannot save your work to the hard drive. Instead, please save your work to your student M: drive or a USB memory stick.

You are only able to return the laptop to the library you borrowed it from.

If you want the laptop for longer than 24 hours, please bring it back to the Enquiry Desk (check our staffed opening hours) and ask for a renewal. Renewals are, however, subject to demand and availability.

After use, please shut down the laptop and return it to the library from which it was borrowed.

Please note: Fines are charged for late returns.
