Laptop loan scheme at Senate House Library (SHL)

We're providing state-of-the-art Dell Latitude 5440 laptops featuring Windows 11 and equipped with full web browsing capabilities, Microsoft Office, Adobe apps, accessibility features and more - everything you need for research and studying at Senate House. We’re open to suggestions on software availability so let us know if you have an app or software request to enhance your productivity.

Currently, we have 28 laptops available from our self-service lockers on the 4th floor, and we're working to increase that number to 60 later this month. These devices can be borrowed for up to one day at a time and used anywhere in the building – including downstairs in BLOOM@SenateHouse. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building.
