Reserving laptops via the calender
Laptops are booked via the rental calendar. The access is protected by Shibboleth and only persons with a valid RWTH employee status and a TIM-Campus connection are allowed. For authentication you need your user name (format: ab123456) and the password for the RWTH Single Sign-On Account. If necessary, you can change or reset your password using the Selfservice. Depending on availability, the computers can be borrowed for a maximum of 28 days. The reservation takes place via a calendar view, where you can also get an overview of the available hardware offer. Please click on "New Reservation".
In the next step, select the desired laptop type, the number of devices required and the loan period in days.
The available time periods are then displayed according to the calendar. Please select the start date of the borrowing period.
