The MLS will be operating on its out of term reduced hours of 9-10am and 2-3pm from Monday 12th June. We will be open for MA students and re-sitting BA students only.

All final year students must return any outstanding equipment by 4.30pm Friday 9th June. Your access to the MLS will end on this date - thanks for your custom! Any outstanding equipment or missing items will be invoiced for their full amount. Please ensure all invoices have been paid for at the Finance counter in the Student Centre.

Summer Extended Bookings:

Please ensure any extensions are authorised by your tutor in advance and that this is forwarded to the MLS. Extensions will only be approved for University related projects. Please do not request full summer bookings if you do not plan to use equipment every day.

Equipment going out of the UK will need to be fully covered by your insurance – please speak to Kevin or Antony for more information.

Studios maybe out of service during the summer for repairs and updates - please contact the relevant subject technician for more information.

 The MLS will be closed on Monday 26th June due to staff training.



No ID card = No kit

Users are reminded that ALL equipment MUST be collected and returned by the agreed date and time of your online booking. Equipment is only checked in once it has been fully inspected by MLS staff. It is the users' responsibility to allow enough time for queuing and the check-in process. Equiment can always be returned early or by another person.

Uncollected bookings automatically expire after 30 minutes of their start time. Please check your equipment on collection and report any missing items to a member of staff; failure to do so will result in you being charged for the missing items.

It is the users' responsibility to format equipment memory prior to and after use.

The Media Loan Shop cannot be held liable for any loss of data on either external or internal storage media of equipment issued.

Non-collection of studio keys.

All studio bookings (Radio, TV, Photo, Recording and Practice spaces) that are not collected up to 30 minutes after the booking start time will incur an automatic 1 week ban from the Media Loan Shop service, including equipment and studio spaces.

Any existing bookings belonging to the banned user that have been made during the ban period will be deleted to release the resources for other users to book. This is in response to the increase of uncollected studio bookings that cause congestion at busy periods.

  • 1-24 hours late = 3 day ban.

  • 3-7 days late = 14 day ban.
