Borrow great equipment for free
12 January 2018 - Katie Langford
Staff and students can borrow high-end media equipment for free from the Media Equipment Loans service.
Available equipment includes the latest GoPro cameras, HD video equipment, cables and connectors, microphones and much more.
The Media Equipment Loans service is provided by IT Services and loans out hundreds of pieces of equipment every week. Staff can borrow equipment for presentations, projects or to document events.
In September, IT Services rolled out its new online booking system for equipment. This portal works like an online shopping site and allows staff and students to browse equipment and reserve it for a specific date. This is particularly relevant to lecturers who assign projects that need media equipment and fear students being unable to complete the assignment due to financial restrictions.
You can reserve the camera or digital recorder you require weeks or even months in advance to ensure you have it when you need it. The staff at the Media Equipment desk can also offer advice and tips on how to use the equipment.
If you would like to know more about the Media Equipment Loans, speak to anyone at the IT Service Desk located on the ground floor of both Libraries.
