Borrow a laptop

University laptops can be borrowed from one of the lapsafes located in our Library spaces and the Gateway.

Laptops can be borrowed on a self-service, first-come-first-served basis, for student use only. Please note that laptops can only be borrowed and returned when the Gateway and Library spaces are open. You can view building opening times online.

Lapsafes are secure charging cabinets for laptops that are located in different buildings on the University campus. There are 7-day and same-day laptop loans available in Library spaces. There are 7-day laptops available in the Gateway and Wearside View.

You will need your campus card and your PIN to borrow and return a laptop and interact with the touch screen on the lapsafe. Click here to set or reset your PIN.
