Technology rental

The technology rental is for students of the TU

  • who need a short-term replacement while they acquire new hardware
  • who need to save money over a longer period of time to be able to buy a new PC
  • who only need a headset or webcam for a short time and do not want to purchase it directly for this purpose.

The rental is intended for students in need and we currently have only a few devices available. So if you have enough resources (e.g. money) to make the purchase yourself, we ask you not to use our lending service! Then we can help more students who need the loan to continue their studies.

To achieve this goal we have two lending formats:

regular loan hardhsip case loan
durationmax. 2 monthsmax. 6 months
Which one should I chose?Your laptop/headset/webcam is broken and…
… you need a replacement urgently.
… you need 1-2 months to save for a replacement.
… you need some time to find a good offer.
You need a headset/webcam for a few meetings and don’t want to buy your own.
Your laptop/headset/webcam is broken and…
… you need a replacement urgently.
… you need more than 2 months time to save for a replacement.
You don’t have a laptop/headset/webcam and urgently need one for university.
What we need from you:– Online application with uploaded certificate of study (name, matriculation number, course of study & semester)

– desired borrowing start and end date

– written justification

-> upload online application and certificate of study

– certificate of study (name, matriculation number, course of study & semester)

– written justification: Why is your case a

– Accepted hardship request OR

-3 months of bank statements

-Proof of your housing costs, health insurance, and children, if applicable.

– Verification of acceptance according to current hardship guidelines. More details can be found here.

-> upload online application, certificate of study and other documents

In special and justified cases, the loan can be extended by half of the loan period (i.e. by 1 or 3 months). Please contact us for this purpose. Unfortunately, we can only allow the extension if we have enough equipment available and no students are on the waiting list.

Lending procedure

The loan works like this:

  1. Application and verification
    You submit an application online (see Application form under the point Documents). This will be checked by the social team and either accepted or rejected. You will receive a response within a maximum of 2 weeks.
  2. Conclusion of contract
    If your application is accepted, the loan will be carried out in the AStA. You will have to sign a loan contract (see Documents below) and a receipt. For this purpose, bring your current certificate of study with a valid identification document to the personal check. After signing the contract you will receive the device(s).
  3. Return of the device(s)
    With the return and confirmation of the return, the contractual relationship and thus the loan ends. For this we will meet again at the AStA. If you have any questions, please use the contact form under the point Problems and Questions.

The Contract

In order to carry out the loan, some things must be regulated to give you the security, for how long and what conditions you get the equipment. For this reason, a contract is concluded between us. In doing so, both parties enter into obligations that are briefly summarized below.
The summary does not replace a careful reading of the contract!

Obligations of the AStA:

  • free provision of a functioning loan object
  • Loan for the fixed period of time

Your obligations

  • punctual return of the device in the borrowed condition
  • assumption of liability during the loan period
  • assumption of costs in case of loss or damage
  • no transfer to third parties
  • no borrowing costs
  • let us know immediately if something does not work!
  • For any questions and problems use the contact form under the point problems and questions.

How-to use

The laptop comes with Windows 10 pre-installed. You are welcome to install other operating systems if you want. Any other programs you need you have to install and pay for yourself. In many cases, the university and the faculties have cooperation agreements for programs that you need in your studies. You can find the offers from the university here:
Among them is Office365 for 5 devices with a total price of 4,99€ per year or Citavi, which is free.
Alternatively, there are freeware options for most commercial products, for example the office program Libreoffice: https://de.libreoffice.org/.

When the device is returned at the end of the loan period, we will delete all data from the device and reset the PC to factory default before loaning it again.

Do not unscrew the device during the period of use.
If it seems necessary, be sure to contact us beforehand!

The headset is plug and play as of Windows 10. This means the driver should already be pre-installed. For older Windows versions and for other operating systems, do your own research first and if you have problems, you can ask us.

The webcam also only needs to be plugged in and should be recognized and usable directly from Windows 10. In case of problems or other operating systems, do your own research first and ask us if you have any problems.

      Case of Hardship Balance

      Filing the application now online only, via the submission portal.

      Printed by appointment only between 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the AStA office.

      ATTENTION: Do not pay the semester fee until your application has been either accepted or denied.

      Please read this text before filling out the application!

      If you cannot afford the semester ticket and the student body dues whatsoever, then…

      … the hardship application might help. Students facing financial hardship may be exempt from paying these fees. These hardship applications can be filed out online on the general students’ committees (AStA TU Dortmund) homepage. This means that if you face existential financial problems due to the fees for the semester ticket and the student body dues, you can apply for a hardship compensation for summer semester 2024 from the general students’ committee. Please note that the deadline varies based on whether you have been matriculated already, or whether you are a first semester student.

      The deadline for people who are already matriculated is on Friday, January 26 th 2024, 12 o’clock midday. Deadline conformity will be determined by when the application with all the needed documents arrived at haertefaelle@asta.tu-dortmund.de (via the submission portal). Deadlines for first semester students are listed in the chart below.

      Within the following weeks, the applicants need will be reviewed. If the application is accepted, the part of the semester fee, will be transferred to the student’s office for you. No matter if your application has been accepted or denied, you will be notified via e-mail about its status.

      Please note that only after you have received our e-mail, you should transfer the amount of money that is said to the student office. Should you transfer partial amounts of the fee before, the matriculation or renewal of matriculation may be strongly delayed, and you might, for example, receive the semester ticket later.

      If you do not receive an e-mail from us after the 11 th of February 2024, then please immediately contact us (the AStA) via e-mail or phone. Please do not contact us before!

      Please remember that the 110-€ for the Studierendenwerk can under no circumstances be payed for by us!

      The outstanding balance (110,-€ if the application is accepted and the complete balance if it’s denied respectively) has to be payed to the student office until the deadline of the 23 th of February 2024. On average you will have two weeks remaining to do so.

      Please note that the hardship compensation is designed to help students in need!

      For anyone who wants to know the details on how the financial need is determined, you can find the latest guidelines for the hardship compensation here. (only in german)

      For anyone who cannot hand in the application online, you will need to send an e-mail with your
      reasoning to haertefaelle@asta.tu-dortmund.de, so an alternative can be arranged.

        Advertising Pillars and Posters

        The management of the advertising pillars on campus have been transferred to the AStA by the TU Dortmund. Therefore, billposting is only permitted after approval by the AStA. Requests from organizations and especially companies without any connection to the student body will generally not be approved. Unapproved posters will be removed again for a fee!

        The booking of the advertising pillars is also possible via the booking system: https://buchungssystem.asta-dortmund.de/

        If you have any questions, please contact: vorsitz@asta.tu-dortmund.de

        Advertising on the advertising pillars

        1. All student groups, autonomous units and student bodies can book the advertising pillars themselves in the booking system.
        2. Bookings of the advertising pillars should not be longer than one week, so that everyone has the opportunity to use the advertising pillars. If you notice shortly before the event that the week before or after the previously booked time is still free, you are always welcome to contact the cultural department of the AStA again personally.
        3. Please check the booking system to see who has just booked a slot on the booking system and do not tape over them.
        4. The advertising pillars and their slots as they are in the booking system are meant to have three slots on the advertising pillars. This does not mean that there is slot 1 at the top, slot 2 in the middle and slot 3 at the bottom, but that you simply book a free slot on the advertising pillars. Therefore, please take into consideration when other events are hanging, which have not yet run and are also reserved in the booking system, not to paste over them.
        5. Be considerate of each other and be fair.

        Advertising in the Studierendenwerk: Information for the Student Body

        1. Since flyers cause technical problems with the dishwasher, we now no longer allow flyers to be placed on the tables in the main cafeteria. For this purpose, flyer racks are now available behind the cash registers in the main cafeteria. In order to use these and place flyers there, permission must be obtained from University Catering. Please direct your request to promotion@stwdo.de. The respective flyer has to be attached to the e-mail. We ask you to remove the displayed flyers directly after the event or after one week.
        2. There is also the possibility to display advertisements related to the study or the daily study routine on the monitors free of charge. Please send your advertisement to kultur@asta.tu-dortmund. The team will then briefly check your ad to see if you are also from an AG, a student council or an autonomous unit and then forward the ad. Ads that are received by the Studierendenwerk by Wednesday can be published the following week. The technical data for this are:
          Size: Full-HD, 1920×1080 Pixel
          File format: jpg, png or gif
          Color: RGB mode
        3. Furthermore, the promotion stands are available free of charge for the above mentioned purposes. The promotion stands can be booked from Monday to Thursday from 7:30 – 17:15 and on Friday from 7:30 -16:15. Reservations should be made at least 4 weeks in advance and should not exceed three consecutive days. Requests to reserve promotional booths should be sent to promotion@stwdo.de. For this purpose, please let us know the specific content and, if necessary, send us a viewing copy of the promotional materials.

The format is 4K MP4 with measurement 5461*3072 pixel. Ads that do not contain moving images can also be send as a PDF or PNG. Please send ads for the AStA monitor to presse@asta.tu-dortmund.de.

        Bicycle Repair Shop (free of charge)

        The AStA bicycle repair shop is a free of charge self-help service for all students and university members who want to repair their own bikes. The service is for those of you who dare to work on their own bike but don’t have the room and the tools they need. Even if this is your first time working on derailleur gear or lighting system – we’re always happy to help. This is your opportunity to get into it without having to worry about your bike not working anymore afterwards.

        The repair shop is located at Haus Dörstelmann on Campus Süd. You can easily get there from Hörsaalgebäude I and from Archeteria. Just pass the Rudolf-Chaudoire-Pavillion towards Baroper Straße and turn right. After a few meters, turn left to driveway 43 and follow towards the end of the parking lot. On the right side of Haus Dörstelmann, you find the entry to the repair shop.
