This monetary support system allows students undergoing financial difficulties to request the help of the University in order to purchase a laptop computer for their studies.
This service was created in the framework of projects financed by the CVEC in 2023 and was suspended at the end of the university year in mid-July 2023. However, we offer you an alternative with Presto, the system for lending computers to students during their university year.
What is the Aid for a Laptop Purchase?
This aid is granted once per student, within the limits of the budget available for this action.
Students who wish to benefit from this aid are invited to read carefully all the information on this page.
Students registered in 2nd year of a Master’s degree have until the end of the 1st semester to make a request, therefore until 31 December 2023.
What Kind of Financial Aid?
The UO helps students undergoing financial difficulties to purchase a reconditioned laptop computer (only) thanks to an aid between 100 and 300€.
If the student gets a favourable decision, he or she will have to make the purchase and then provide a receipt to obtain the reimbursement of the amount of aid.
In order to promote circular economy, the laptop needs to be bought at either NORIP store (5 rue de la Gabellière - 45380 La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin) or ENVIE store (2 rue Emile Leconte - 45140 Ingré) in order to benefit from this aid.
Each application file is subject to a social assessment.

- Benefitting from a scholarship and/or having financial difficulties;
- Being assiduous to exams;
