What does it mean for me?
As a student, you can book Creative Media equipment (approved students only), study spaces, and research desks (postgraduate students only).
Please ensure you check the terms and conditions for each resource prior to booking as some equipment is owned by different teams within the university. Also, be aware that if the equipment is booked in your name, you may be responsible for that equipment. If it is lost, broken or damaged you may be responsible for the costs of the repair or replacement of that equipment.
