Problems With Your Laptop?

If you encounter any problems with your laptop, you can borrow one from the AStA Student Union at no cost. These laptops are capable of videoconferencing via Zoom (or similar tools), and you can run wordprocessing programs on them. However, they’re not sufficiently powerful to run more complex software on them. If you want to make use of this offer, please write an email to .
