Loanable laptops: Loanable laptops

How students can borrow a Library loanable laptop and terms and conditions

We have 24 laptops which you can borrow when we are open; perfect if you don’t want to carry your own laptop into University, can’t find a free computer or just want to work in a quiet corner of the library or campus.

This is a service just for students.

Our loanable laptops are on the entrance level (Level 1) of the library. As you enter the library, turn left and keep going until you come to the laptop charging unit.

  • You can borrow and return loanable laptops using our self-service system and your Newman ID card.

  • You can have laptops for 4 hours or until the library closing time, whichever is soonest, but you can’t renew or reserve them.

  • Our laptops are free to borrow, but you will be fined if you return them late.

  • Our laptops are Wi-Fi enabled, and the library is a Wi-Fi zone. Use eduroam to connect – ask for help at either of our helpdesks on Level 1 or 2.

  • You can print from a laptop. Find out how on the IT Services Help Guides page.

  • Save your work to your own external device (e.g. memory stick) or cloud-based storage.

  • If we are closed or unstaffed and you can’t return a laptop to the loanable laptop unit, return it to the Security Lodge (Level 0, St Chad building).

  • You must agree to our terms and conditions before borrowing a laptop.
