Should I bring my own device?
There are plenty of computer labs around the university, and you are free to use them at day-time. There are also printers and scanners available, and you will get certain amount of free prints. We still recommend you to bring your own computer with you, in order to be able to work at home too. Wireless internet connection is available at campus.
An electronic key of 15 € gives 24/7 access to the computer labs. You will get 10 € back after returning the key.
