Laptop Loaning Service

  • Who: Students, who require a laptop for study-related reasons. Valid examples include the writing of seminar papers, Bachelor/Master theses or works of similar importance.
  • Requirements: You are not in possession of a (functional) laptop and the supervising chair is not able to provide such. Your supervisor‘s confirmation shall suffice as proof.
  • Loan Duration: For a final paper (or a work of similar nature), one shall be loaned the device for 6 months. For all other works (e.g. Seminar Papers), a laptop can be loaned for 3 months. Additionally, one can renew their loan, if required, once by an additional 3 months.
