If you don’t have access to your own laptop or PC, you can make use of our free iBorrow scheme.
We recommend that you have your own laptop computer as there will be lots of online resources, recorded lectures and activities for you to engage with, to support your independent learning, both on and off campus. If you are worried about accessing essential IT equipment to support your studies please contact email@example.com for advice and support. See Laptop and Broadband Financial Support for further details. However, for your short-term needs we have iBorrows. These are small, lightweight laptops that have the same full suite of software as the University PCs.
There are two iBorrow options available to you. Most iBorrows only work over the wireless network and can only be used on campus. Alternatively, we have iBorrows that can be borrowed from the Library Point in Augustine House on 2 week loan, that can be used outside the University buildings.
iBorrows are available in Augustine House, the St George’s Student Centre, North Holmes Road, Salomons Institute Library and Rowan Williams in Medway.
In Augustine House and Salomons Library, iBorrows are stored in clearly marked storage and charging cabinets on each floor. Simply take one from the cabinet and use it. When you’re done return it to the cabinet and connect it to re-charge ready for the next user.
In the St George’s Centre and Medway campus they can be collected from the reception desks.
There are iborrows available to loan for personal CCCU student use, only from the Library Point in Augustine House.
