The Library has 60 self-service laptops available to loan to students. These are located on the ground floor and must be borrowed and returned using your ID card.

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 on

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.
