Need a laptop?
A computer is an indispensible accessory for your studies, but buying one isn't cheap. Or maybe your laptop breaks and you aren't able to replace it rightaway?
Buy a laptop
As a student, you can buy a computer at a discount. Through Campus Shop, you can purchase new or refurbished devices. As a student, you are automatically entitled to the free 'fast student service' for a period of two years. If something is wrong with your laptop, it will be picked up the next working day and repaired within 5 working days. If it can't be fixed in 5 days, you'll get a loan laptop for free.
Through Academic Shop, you can purchase a new laptop or rent one. In case of problems with your laptop, students are helped quickly and can get a replacement device. If needed, a technician can come on site to repair your laptop.
If you meet certain conditions, you can apply for an interest-free student loan for the purchase of a laptop.
Medicine and Pharmacy students
Medicine and Pharmacy students are able to borrow a laptop through a different procedure. They can borrow one for 1 month and pick it up on VUB Health Campus in Jette.
