BCU is LapSafe®’s largest university user of their Diplomat™ Self-Service Laptop Loan lockers in the world, with almost 700 locker bays available to students across 18 installations throughout the campus.

A diverse and increasingly popular place for students to study, BCU has around 25,000 students and 4,000 members of staff. Over the last ten years, BCU has invested heavily in new buildings and facilities. They are currently undertaking a £340 million investment programme which includes expansion of their Birmingham City Centre campus.

Paul Davis, IT Quality Manager at BCU, said: “The big driving force for our using LapSafe® has been to optimise learning space for students. In order to increase the study space available, we decided to loan out laptops to students and reduce the PC workstations across the campus. This has allowed us to increase study space available and by installing the LapSafe® Diplomat™ we’ve allowed students to borrow a laptop whenever they want.”

The Diplomat™ is a sophisticated and intelligent self-service locker system which loans devices or lockers 24 x 7. Fully charged devices such as laptops, Chromebooks and tablets can be automatically loaned to borrowers without staff interaction.
