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.
If you meet certain conditions, you can apply for an interest-free student loan for the purchase of a computer.
Borrow a laptop
If you can't manage to take out a loan at the moment, or if your computer is out of use for a certain period (for example for repairs), you can borrow a laptop at no cost from the VUB, for a period of between one day and six months.
To apply, fill in the form below. We will look into your application and if you are eligible we will get in touch with you to send a loan agreement digitally. We will link your VUB account to the laptop beforehand. Do be aware that it can take a week before you can come and pick up the laptop.
