Borrow a Laptop! (new self - service system!

The Libraries on Getafe (only Getafe, not Leganés) campus now have a new service available that may be of your interest: if you need to use a laptop while on campus but you don't have yours with you, you can borrow one for three hours and take it with you to class. The only thing you would need to do is go to one of Getafe's UC3M libraries, approach the self - service area and introduce your student UC3M ID number and password. 
You should obtain a total of 3 items: the laptop itself, the charger and the mouse. You must return everything before 8:00 p.m. in any case
If you are interested in knowing more about this service, feel free to ask someone at the Library for more information. 

At the Leganés campus you can also borrow a laptop, but you won't find the self - service option. You will need to ask for the laptop at the front desk. 

On a more practical note, there are a few things you should know about the campus that will facilitate your life as a UC3M student:

Study/Group Work Rooms at UC3M

At University Carlos III of Madrid, there are Study rooms where you can go by yourself and be in a quiet environment where you can study and get work done. If you need a space to make group work, there are also spots available on campus. These rooms are located at the different UC3M libraries, and you will need to make a reservation with your UC3M student ID in order to use them.  Click here for more information on where to find them, and how to book one of these rooms.
