Answer

Laptops are available to borrow from lap safes at St. Peter's Library, The Murray Library, and The Gateway. These are completely self-service machines and there is no need to ask at the building helpdesks for staff to release the laptops.

To borrow a laptop you will need your campus card and your PIN. To set your PIN, please go to library.sunderland.ac.uk/pin.

This is the lap safe at The Murray Library:
