Laptop Loan Locker

Terms of Service

  •  Twenty laptops are available for self-service borrowing and are located in the Library Group Study (LGS) in Block 4.  They may be borrowed any time the LGS is open, 8 am to midnight, 7 days a week. Please note that the LGS is locked promptly at midnight.

  • The laptops are normally available for loan for a maximum of 3 hours;  a charge will be incurred if the laptop is returned to the locker after this time.

  • Only card-holding Middlesex Dubai students, with “in good standing” accounts (fines not exceeding 20 AED, no financial holds), may borrow laptops. Only one laptop per student at any given time may be borrowed.

  • A laptop is issued on the understanding that it becomes the sole responsibility of the student until it is returned. The borrower is liable for any costs due to the theft, loss, or damage to the laptop, while it is in your possession.

  • It is also the responsibility of the borrower to ensure that the laptop is properly returned (plugged in, drawer door shut). Failure to do so will result in overdue charges and the opportunity for another student to take a laptop signed out to the previous borrower.

  • Upon returning, please check the laptop for any physical damage, and turn it on to make sure the laptop and screen is in working condition; if damaged, immediately report laptop and the nature of the problem to the Library by calling 04 367 8124 or emailing library@mdx.ac.ae

  • Laptops are charged sufficiently for the duration of a 3 hour loan. The Library is not responsible for any data loss which may occur if the laptop is used beyond its charge limit.

  • If students wish to borrow a laptop for longer than 3 hours, to avoid loss of battery charge and incurring of overdue fines, return the borrowed laptop prior to its due time and, if one is available, borrow a different laptop. 

  • Late charges:  5 AED per hour for any late return (up to a maximum of 50 AED per day). 

  • You are strongly advised to save any work onto your own USB memory stick, as any work saved onto the laptop will automatically be deleted upon computer shutdown/restart.

  • Please shut down the computer when you have finished – documents will NOT be saved on the laptop.

  • All standard software found on the computers in the Library Lab is available on the laptops.

  • You must have a valid Middlesex user ID and password to log into the wireless network to access the internet.

  • If the LGS office is unstaffed and you require assistance, please call the Library during open hours (04 367 8124) or email library@mdx.ac.ae
