Equipment Loans

If you would like to borrow equipment, all you need to do is bring along your staff or student card and we will add your details to our system. You can use the contact us page to book equipment in advance.

  • Please remember you are responsible for the equipment booked out under your name.
  • Ensure that you take care of all equipment and return it promptly informing us of any issues you may have had with it.
  • You will be charged for any loss or damage whilst it is on loan to you.
  • You should not leave equipment unattended at any time.
  • Please ensure equipment is stored carefully and securely while away from the university.
  • Instructions for any of our loan items can be found further down this page.

Please contact us if you are unable to return items on time as other students or lecturers may be waiting for them.
