The VU Library provides access to laptops and study rooms. Please note that study rooms can’t be booked at the moment as all libraries are closed until further notice.

Find out how to book a laptop in advance, and check the booking guidelines on this page.

Book a laptop

Library’s laptops will be made available to students for an extended borrowing period under special circumstances. 

Students can contact the Library to check laptop availability and enquire about making a booking.

Book a study room - booking not available

Study rooms can’t be booked at the moment as all libraries are closed until further notice.

Study Rooms are bookable using MyPC for up to 2 hours and up to 7 days in advance. Room bookings cannot be extended and usually one booking is allowed by a user.

Study rooms are only for group study only (two or more students). They are not for individual study. Study rooms can only be booked and used by VU students. They are not available for staff use.

Library staff reserve the right to cancel or re-allocate a booking, or ask someone to leave if the:

  • student who booked the room does not turn up within 15 minutes of the booking
  • room is being used by a person other than the student who has a current booking
  • room is being used by an individual
  • room is being used for a purpose other than study
  • behaviour of users is inappropriate.

We strongly advise that you book in advance.

  • Remember to turn up within 15 minutes to your room as your booking may be cancelled and re-allocated to other students.
