How to borrow

Loan periods

There are no fixed loan periods. Discuss with us what you want to do and we'll agree the loan period when you borrow the equipment.

Some equipment is pre-reserved for use on teaching modules during certain periods. If you want to reserve equipment for a specified period let us know as far in advance as possible.

Insurance and limitations on use

Some specialised equipment requires insurance to be taken off-campus. Contact us for further information.

Borrowers are responsible for appropriate use of equipment.
