New laptop loans at Southend

Filed under: Southend — Laura Mathias @ 2.08 pm

We’re introducing a new laptop loan service for students at Southend Campus.

There are 36 laptops available for loan, which you can access 24/7, 365 days a year from our new self-service laptop kiosk located in the Forum Learning Hub.

You will be able to use the laptops in The Learning Hub, at Clifftown Studios and The Gateway Building.

To take out a laptop:
• Go to the laptop kiosk and select ‘Borrow’ using the touch screen.
• Scan your student card on the card reader below.
• Scan your student card on the flashing tower.
• Take the laptop.
• Voila, the laptop is yours for the next 3 hours to work on campus.

The laptops run like Lab PCs, and you’ll be able to access your University drive from them. You can access your e-mails, create Word, Powerpoint, and Excel documents, and even print.

If you would like any information on borrowing, using and returning the laptops, our staff at the Info Point in the learning hub are on hand to help.
