This is to ensure that students who do not own the required hardware also have the opportunity to participate in classes provided in digital form.

You can borrow the devices from the ZIM if you present corresponding eligibility confirmation from the AStA student council. To receive a confirmation of your eligibility, please submit a corresponding request to the AStA student council by e-mail (in one single PDF file) to the following address:
