Day Loan Laptops

Day Loan Laptops

There are two smart-locker units available.

  • Adsetts Level 4
  • Collegiate Library - on the ground floor beneath the stairs

You can access everything off campus you would usually be able to access on campus on a University PC.

How to borrow a laptop

  • Swipe your SHUcard on the small screen
  • A number will be displayed; press the button on the corresponding locker to open the door
  • Unplug the laptop. You'll notice there are power cables for you to borrow too
  • If you are taking the laptop off campus, make sure you login before you leave the library

Laptops count towards your loan limit of 20 items; you'll be able to see the laptop listed in My Library Account just as you do for books you've got on loan.

How to return a laptop

Laptops must be returned by midnight the following day, regardless of what time you borrowed it. The service is available 24/7/365 to match the opening hours of the libraries. Extensions are not available.

  • Laptops must be returned to the locker they were issued from
  • Swipe your SHUcard on the small screen again
  • The same locker door that you borrowed it from will open automatically
  • The due date is displayed on My Library Account.
  • Replace the power cables at the back, then plug the laptop in to recharge. Plugging it in 'returns' the item on My Library Account
