Student laptop loans
A number of laptops for students are available at each library. The laptops can be borrowed for up to 24 hours at a time and may be taken outside of the library.
If you intend to take a loan laptop off campus you will need to log on before taking off campus, otherwise you won't be able to use the laptop.
Personal laptops can be used in the library. Access to the internet is by connecting to the eduroam network for which you will need a valid student, staff or affiliate IT account: please see the IT webpages.
If you are visiting from another academic institution, you may use the eduroam network, if your home institution supports this. Please see the information on eduroam on the IT web pages.
