Print @UCL multi-functional devices (MFDs) require a UCL card in order to work and are enabled for photocopying, printing, scanning and emailing results.
UCL students will have £12 print / copy credit each year on their UCL cards and will be able to use this credit on the photocopiers. A cash loader is available near to the photocopiers for students to top up their UCL card. Students can also top up online. Please note that the £12 free credit is reset at the beginning of each academic year. Any unused credit that has been added by the user will carry over to the next academic year. However, any free credit added to your account by UCL will NOT be carried over.
You can check your remaining credit online at any time.

Laptops are available for loan at the IOE Library.
Laptop Loans are on a rolling 24 hour loan. If a laptop is borrowed on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, it should be returned at 10:00 on Monday. If the library opens at 10:00, a 70-minute grace period will apply to returns.
You will need your barcode (on the back of your UCL card) and PIN to borrow laptops.
Overdue laptops will incur a fine of £5 per day.
Tip! Laptops are set to reset themselves when the lid is closed or when they are shut down. The user is responsible for saving and backing up all work to the N Drive or other external storage. Once the laptop has been turned off, unfortunately it is not possible to retrieve anything from the previous session.
You can find more information on laptop loans on the UCL Library Services website.
