Recommended Measures Prior to Use

Please make sure that battery is charged if you want the notebook to run on battery power.

Furthermore, we recommend connecting the notebook to the internet prior to using it in a lecture room so that any available updates (operation system and virus scanner) can be installed within a timely manner.

Device Pickup and Return

Pickup and return of the device must take place by the borrower only at the IT office (Exnerhaus, ground floor / 38, Peter-Jordan-Str. 82, 1190 Vienna) during the office's opening hours.

Pickup or return at any other IT location as well as delivery is NOT possible.

Loan Period

We ask you to abide by the loan period agreed upon so that your colleagues can also pick up the notebook at their agreed upon time. If necessary, the loan period can be extended - provided that there is no other reservation for the device. Please inform the IT office as soon as possible prior to the originally planned return date. The maximum loan period is one month. In the event of any non-agreed upon extension, fees are calculated until the date at which the device is returned!


Payment is made when returning the device either in cash or by invoice via the institute. In the latter case, the respective burden center or number of internal order has to be provided.

Students who want to rent a device on institution costs need a confirmation form of the head of the institute (a short email is sufficient).

Please note that we do not accept payment forms or ATM cards for payment of the device.

Liability for Damages or Loss

For expense reasons, the notebooks are not insured. In case of loss or damage occurring due to improper handling the renter carries exclusive liability.
