Our collection

The library supports the Faculty of Science and Technology, covering the following subject areas:

Macbook self-service loan system 

Students and staff can borrow a MacBook using our 24/7 Self-Service Loan System at Cavendish Campus (on the Ground Floor - outside Student Union office).

The system allows you to borrow a MacBook using your University card and a PIN code at any time. You can borrow the MacBook for 24 hours and then return it using your University card.

Find out more about the Macbook loan service and how to borrow.
