Laptops are available to loan and connect to eduroam wifi and can be used anywhere in the building.  However they cannot be taken out of the building. 

  • Laptops can be loaned for up to 8 hours during staffed hours at Western Bank Library and Health Sciences library Royal Hallamshire Hospital.  
  • They are a highly-used resource so it is advised to book. Bookings can be made up to 2 days in advance through the Resource Bookings facility in MUSE. You will need to collect and return your laptop from the information desks. 
  • 24 hour self service laptops - at the Information Commons in the self-service area on Level 0 and The Diamond on the 4th floor.  The laptops are available 24 hours a day, for use in the building only, on a first-come first-serve basis - there is no need to book in advance.

How to borrow a laptop 

How to return a laptop

You will need your UCard and PIN number to use the service. It takes up one slot on your library account, so if you are maxed out on books you won’t be able to use the service.

Important !!  - when you return a laptop you need to plug the charger cable back in, as this is how the system recognises it has been returned. If you don’t plug it back in the laptop will remain on your account.
