Whether you are an international student coming from overseas and unable to bring your instruments with you, or a student with a band, needing equipment for a gig, or if you want to learn an instrument but don't want to make a purchase until you are sure it is the right one for you, our instrument lending library is there for you.
To borrow or reserve an item, please email the Rock Tutor at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop up to see the College Administrator or Assistant Head of College on the first floor of The Warren. Items that are out on long-term loan will then be recalled. Items can also be borrowed for Garage sessions.
All those with membership of Vanbrugh Rocks may borrow the majority of items free of charge.
