For students who participate in at least 6 ECTS worth of subjects in ICS it is possible to borrow a computer from the Delta library (Narva mnt 18) if there are any spare ones left. The Institute favours lending laptops to students from other institutes that minor in informatics. Preferred are students who take and have taken subjects for more credit points during current and previous semesters. Full time students are institute's first priority. Computers have to be returned after subjects taken from the institute are completed.

This lending opportunity is a privilege. In exceptional cases the Institute exercises the right to call back a computer with two weeks notice and without further explanation. The need might arise from presenting false information, dropping out of a course or some other unforeseen reason.

Students from other disciplines can lend computers from the library in Narva mnt 18 by sending the description of subjects taken in ICS during previous and current semester to librarian

Since students are financially liable for the maintenance of the laptop, we are offering an Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) warranty in addition to a standard warranty. It helps to cover for situations where the user has unintentionally damaged the computer. Previous experience shows that repairs without ADP cost around 178,80 euros (price may change)

ADP covers:
  • Physical damages to the screen and case
  • Broken keyboard
  • Water damage

ADP costs 150 euros and can be ordered from Narva mnt 18 room 2051. ADP is added to the computer’s standard warranty and ends at the same time.
