HYU office of Information and Communication’s Software Team is renting mini-laptops to the students. Since September 2008, it has been lending laptops and Wibro (Wireless Broadband).
There has been student demand for lending laptops. So, the school is lending it to graduates and under-graduates. HYU students can lend laptops from Software Room on 6th floor of Engineering Building ii in Seoul Campus and Information and Communication Room on 2nd floor of Engineering Building IV in Ansan Campus. The price of the rental is 3000won per night. It is even more convenient because students can pay for it and extend the dates on-line. Lee Mi-ran, the charge of the Software Team at Office of Information and Communication said, “Many university students are using it for writing reports and many graduates are taking it to scientific meetings. Also, this laptop renting system is most actively used during the exam season. The number of renting students is gradually increasing, and students are satisfied with it.”
Baek Seung-won, the freshman of English language and Literature said, “It is very useful for writing reports, and the price is quiet reasonable. Lending it for one night costs less than a few hours in a PC Room.”
