Netbook and laptop loans



Kent students can borrow wireless enabled netbooks and laptops. They are available for use within the Templeman Library and cannot be taken out of the building.

Borrow a netbook

Netbooks are available from cabinets on each floor of the Templeman Library: Levels 2, 3 and 4 Centre, and the social learning zone on Level 1 East. To borrow a netbook simply take it from its shelf and unplug it. Take those with green lights first - they are fully charged.

When you are finished, simply return the netbook and plug it in for the next person.

Borrow a laptop

You can borrow a laptop from the IT & Library Support Desk on Level 2 Centre on production of your KentOne card.

Laptops can only be borrowed during the IT & Library Support Desk opening hours; a 50p per hour fine applies for late returns and failure to return a laptop by desk closing time.

What can I access?

Using netbooks and laptops you can:

  • access the internet (using Internet Explorer)
  • read your email
  • work on your essays using Microsoft Office
  • print to campus printers: you will need to install the required printer.
  • access your files and folders on the Kent network
