Laptops for loan

Laptops are available for students to borrow on the City, Grafton, Epsom and Tāmaki campuses.


Borrowing laptops

Users may borrow laptops from these locations:

The following conditions apply:

  • Users must present an ID card to borrow a laptop.
  • Users may borrow a laptop for two hours. Laptops can be renewed for a further two hours online using My Library Account, e.g., if the laptop is due at 2:00pm, renewing it at 1:30pm will make it due at 3:30pm, not 4:00pm. If users wish to continue using the laptop after this, they must return to the desk where they borrowed it from and it will be reissued.
  • Laptops may not be borrowed overnight.
  • Users must comply with all conditions for laptop use and are liable for costs incurred as a result of loss, theft or damage as per the Library Statute.
