The Library has a variety of laptops available for University of Leicester students to borrow:
- 4-Hour Loan Laptops, which can be borrowed from the cabinet near the Information Hub.
- 48-Hour Loan Laptops, which can be borrowed at the Information Hub.
- 28-Day Loan Laptops, which can also be borrowed at the Information Hub.
Please note that your Student ID is required to borrow a laptop.
The 4-Hour Loan Laptops are loaned on their own and will only work on-campus.
The 48-Hour and 28-Day Loan Laptops are loaned with a laptop case and charger, and will work off-campus provided that the set-up instructions (found in each laptop bag) are followed before use.
Please note that the loanable laptops are meant for short-term use. If you require a laptop for a longer period than 28 days and are unable to obtain one for financial or other reasons, we would recommend that you contact the University's Welfare team at email@example.com or 0116 223 1185. They will be able to advise whether any further support is available to you.
As the laptops are high demand items, overdue laptops will incur a £5 fine per day or part of day. It is therefore your responsibility to be aware of the due date and due time of a laptop and return it on time. Additionally, you can only loan one laptop at a time.
If a laptop is lost, damaged, or remains unreturned the Library reserves the right to charge replacement costs, which is £1,095, plus the cost of any accessories.
There are also a variety of PCs available for student use both in the Library and across campus. For further information, please see the Find a PC webpages.
