Equipment loans

For home use

If you need to borrow equipment such as a Mac or PC (Windows) laptop to use off-campus, please come and enquire at the Learning Technology Helpdesk (floor 2 of the library) to see if an item is in stock. Other equipment including voice recorders and pen tablets are also available to hire. 

Payment is made through the Online Shop which can be accessed through the Portal Apps or via this link.

Late Returns and Fines 

If you return any equipment late you will incur a fine. If necessary, legal action will be taken to recover any unreturned equipment. You will be unable to graduate until fines have been paid. If you encounter any problem in returning hired equipment, please contact us immediately (contact details below).
