Free Laptop Rental for Students

Free Laptop Rental for Students

Due to the increased demand, the processing of applications is currently taking longer than usual. We ask you not to send us your application twice.

Special funds have been made available in order to support students in the context of digital teaching and used to procure laptops that can be provided to students who do not have the means to buy their own devices. 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 post or by e-mail (in one single PDF file) to the following address:
