for Reserving CSC Notebook
- All Main Campus (both
full-time and part-time) students are eligible to borrow the notebook computers
from CSC Service Counter. When the student borrows the computer, s/he assumes
financial responsibility for it. If the computer were stolen or damaged, the
user would be billed the amount derived from its original price, lifetime,
and depreciation costs.
- Students belonged to
Telford Annex are not allowed to borrow these notebook computers.
- The following loan periods
- one loan session from Monday to Friday: 08:45 to 22:00
- one loan session on Saturday: 08:45 to 21:00
- one loan session on Sunday 13:00 to 17:30
- no loan on public holidays
- Computer Reservation
System (CRS - a new web-based reservation system integrating with the Banner
system) is developed for students to reserve CSC workstations and notebook
computers. A scoring system is used to accumulate scores from reservations,
checkouts, cancellations, late returns, violation of rules, and set the privilege
of reservation for each student. The higher the scores, the lower the privilege.
- According to the priority
score, students are divided into 3 classes namely A, B & C.
Class A (priority score from 0 to 48) can reserve notebook computer 2 days
Class B (priority score from 49 to 96) can reserve notebook computer 1 day
Class C (priority score greater or equal to 97) can reserve notebook computer
on the same day.
- Even with no reservation,
notebook computers will be provided only when available.
- For any loan notebook
computers that are returned after the closing time of the Mobile Computer
Service on the same day the notebook is borrowed, the system will mark the
transaction as `late return'. While additional priority points will be added
to the student, a fine of HK$100 per day (including public holidays) will
also be imposed. You will not be allowed to borrow another notebook computer
until the payment is settled.

has the right to request another user who is using the reserved terminal to
leave at once. If the workstation is logged in but the user without reservation
is not there and does not show up within 5
minutes, his/her workstation can be logged out without notice. In this situation,
neither the user with the valid reservation nor the CSC shall be responsible
for any damage or loss of data, programmes, or belongings.

you must show up within the first 15
minutes. Otherwise, the reservation will automatically become invalid. The
workstation will be given to another user on a first-come-first-served basis
