Book Loan Equipment

We have a number of programming kits available. We also offer CPD courses covering the Crumble Kits, Micro:Bits and Raspberry Pi Pico. Currently, all equipment is fully subsidised, so there are no hire costs 🙂

Important Booking Information

We’re introducing a new online booking system. But, for the moment, you can view availability on the online system – but please contact us by email to make requests.

  • Equipment is currently only available within in specific timeframes (half termly)
  • Bookings currently require a lead of at least 7 days (we are aiming to reduce this in due course so you can book nearer the time)
  • If equipment shows as unavailable for the timeframe you need, you can contact us and we will try to find a solution
  • An online or face-to-face “how to” workshop (between 30-45 minutes) should be undertaken before using loan equipment
  • Please indicate whether you will collect the equipment, organise your own courier, or request that the Hub organises a courier.

Please contact us immediately if any of the following apply:

  • If the name of the person responsible for the equipment changes
  • If a piece of equipment is not working on receipt, or breaks during your loan period. We’ll aim to replace it as soon as possible
  • If your circumstances change during your loan period (e.g. you can no longer return the equipment without a courier)

NOTE: The booking system will currently 'force' you to choose certain date brackets. This is normal and expected, although we are working towards a much more flexible system. The system will ONLY allow you to book for the available blocks of time.

Please help us to test the system by making your booking online and sending us any feedback on [email protected].
