Remember the golden rules of Bookit

The following is a quick reference summary of some of the key points in the ECA Equipment Loans (Bookit): Terms and Conditions of Use. Please ensure you have read the wording in full.

  • Individual stores have their own opening hours and entitlement policies. Certain resources may require approval, induction or have other restrictions.
  • Loan equipment is to be used for University study, teaching or research-related purposes only.
  • You can only borrow equipment from one store in a single booking. Bookings should be made in advance to avoid disappointment.
  • When collecting equipment, you must bring your valid student or staff card with you. Uncollected bookings will be automatically cancelled.
  • You are responsible for your own health and safety and that of those around you whilst using borrowed equipment.
  • You are responsible for the equipment for the entire time it is on loan to you. You may be asked to pay for repair or replacement of items which are deemed lost, stolen or damaged.
  • You may be able to extend your booking if the equipment has not been booked by someone else. Please contact the store to check availability before the equipment is due to be returned. Once equipment is late, the booking cannot be extended.
  • Equipment must be returned to the store from which it was borrowed, before the end of the loan period and during store opening times.
  • The store cannot be held responsible for any loss of data that may occur from using recordable media. Any files saved onto media cards or hard drives supplied with loan equipment will be deleted on return; ensure you have a backup copy.
  • Late items will incur fines. You will not be able to make new bookings whilst you have late items. If you have unpaid fines you will not be able to log in.

By using this system you are agreeing to abide by the ECA Equipment Loans (Bookit): Terms and Conditions of Use.
