Below is a list of the Standard equipment that we can offer across our facilities.  Where fixed equipment is unavailable we will make provision of portable equipment.

Fixed Equipment

Retractable Projector Screens

Hearing Loop

A hearing loop to assist lecture attendees with hearing difficulties. Both Infra Red and fixed loops are available on request. Please note specific requirements when requesting this item.

Portable Equipment

For security reasons all portable equipment will be left for collection at the building reception at least 45 minutes prior to the time that they are booked for. The person who will be using the equipment is required to collect it from the duty attendant and sign a registration form. The equipment remains that individual’s responsibility until they sign it back into reception.

During breaks in events and teaching it is imperative that equipment is either locked in rooms or ideally returned to reception, as responsibility remains with the signatory any damage or theft occur.
