Laptop Loans

Terms and Conditions

The laptop loan scheme is open to all registered undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. You can borrow a laptop for up to 30 days, after which time you will need to return it to the Library. You can only borrow one laptop at a time.

The laptops should be used for academic purposes. You should not borrow one on behalf of a friend, or loan them to friends or family to use. You will be responsible for the safety and security of the laptop whilst it is on loan to you and you should take steps to adequately protect and insure it.  

Administrative fees to a maximum value of £40 will be applied for late return. If you fail to return the laptop, or damage the laptop, the University reserves the right to charge you up to the full value of the laptop.

Requesting and Collecting

You will need to choose a laptop at either City, Walsall or Telford campus. You will need to collect and return your laptop to the campus you choose.

You will receive an email confirmation when your laptop is ready to collect. When you come to collect your laptop you will need your ID card – we cannot issue the laptop without an ID card.

Please allow at least 15 minutes for collection, library staff will help you log on and issue instructions and answer any questions you have. Staff will also provide a Terms of Use document for you to sign.

For information about accessing our libraries please see the Road to Reopening the Library page.

You should wear a mask on campus (unless exempt) and observe all social distancing guidelines.
