You will need your student ID badge to borrow books and equipment in the Learning Hub.


There is a self-service machine which you can use to borrow, renew and return books. To borrow using the self-service machine you will need to have your student ID badge activated at the main desk. Please remember to sanitise your hands before and after use. 

Loan periods

Loans are available for one, two or three weeks depending on the item and can be renewed once. If you want to request a renewal, you can come and see us in person, renew via the self-service machine, give us a call on the phone or send us an email. Overdue fines can be easily avoided by getting in touch with us via one of these methods.
