Media Loan Service

The College of the Arts and Society at Coventry University is proud of its advanced equipment hire Media Loan Service (MLS) that operates in two separate buildings. There is one media loan service located in Ellen Terry and one in Delia Derbyshire.

The Media Loan Service provides a range of specialist equipment for both students and staff, with equipment ranging from the most basic audio recorders to highly professional cameras, where staff are on hand to give technical advice and instructions for ease of use and build lasting relationships throughout the university.

What can students do here?

Students can collect equipment and certain room keys, which are all booked online. Technical assistance with MLS equipment, advice and information is also available here.

What equipment/software is available for students to use?

There is a large range of equipment from basic to professional cameras, tripods, audio recorders, lights, etc. but no software.

How do students interact with the facility?
