  • For a master thesis (or comparable to a semester thesis) you get a laptop for 6 months.

  • These periods can be extended once by 1 month if required.

You need a laptop and meet the requirements? In the following we will explain the way to your rental device:

  1. Application: Fill out the form below and submit it.
  2. We accept the request: If all the requirements are met, the contract formalities and the laptop are prepared we will inform you by e-mail that you can collect the laptop from us.
  3. Pay deposit and pick up laptop: Once you have received our email, you can come by the ITW helpdesk during our opening hours. You pay the deposit of 200 €, sign your contract and take your laptop with you.

Legal issues

  • Insurance/responsibility: The rental laptops are not insured. If the laptop you borrow breaks down, you will have to pay for the damage.
  • Extent of liability: With the conclusion of the rental contract, the value of the laptop at that time is fixed (initially 1000 €). If you lose your laptop or if it breaks down, you are liable for this amount (in case of loss) or for the repair price.

These obligations may seem hard at first. However, since you are not required to pay any rental fee, it is not possible to take out a corresponding insurance policy. However, your liability insurance will cover you if you or your parents have taken out one.
