Booking Creative Media Facilities and Equipment

All our equipment must be collected & returned to the level 4 Helpdesk in The Diamond.

Equipment and facilities must be used for academic work, failure to do so will result in limited access to the service. To collect or access any equipment/facilities the lead booker must present their UCard, UCards are needed to access the building, those without UCards will not be issued equipment/access to the facilities. No equipment/facilities can be booked at the Helpdesk these must be done in advance of you arriving.

Please note the times for collection/returning of equipment and our general open hours are different.
