Borrow Items from the JCR!

The JCR has certain useful items available to borrow if/when you need them, so make sure to keep these in mind: 

Rentable temporary laptops

If your laptop breaks and you need to borrow one temporarily while you buy a new one/apply for a hardship grant to contribute to buying a new one etc, there are some laptops available to rent in college. Please contact for details and to arrange a time; you will sign them out and pick up from her office in staircase 5 next to the Academic Director’s office.


Charity mattress/air bed/sleeping bag rental

Contact the Charities rep to borrow these. The air mattresses are stored in the JCR store room which is the basement of staircase 6; ask for the key from plodge (also called JCR office). There are currently 2 available; £3 per 24hrs rent, goes on battels, but is donated to charity. There are also sleeping bags and roll out mattresses- these can be used at no extra cost, but still message the charities rep if you want to use them. 


Charity bike rental 

Contact the Charities rep to borrow this (they will give you the key to the bike lock). The JCR bike is red and is stored in Rokos under Schild building. £3 per 24hrs rent, goes on battels, but is donated to charity.


Borrow a whiteboard 

Doing a group project? Brainstorming essay plans? Feel free to borrow one of the JCR whiteboards and take it where you like. They are stored in the Ward Perkins room, please return them after use. If you’d like to keep it in your room for a longer period of time (eg over the term), please let someone in the committee know, so we can ensure it gets returned.
