Lending laptops to students from other disciplines
For students who participate in at least 6 ECTS worth of subjects in ICS it is possible to borrow a computer from the institute library (J.Liivi 2) 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 J.Liivi 2 by sending the description of subjects taken in ICS during previous and current semester to librarian liina.jurimaa [ät] ut.ee.

Since students are financially liable for the laptops maintenance, we are offering an Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) warranty in addition to regular warranty. It helps to cover for situations where the user has unintentionally damaged the computer. Previous experience shows that repairs without ADP cost around 200-1000 euros.
