Laptop Purchase Portal

Success at the university level involves accessing the tools you need to stay current with coursework at Trinity as well as with other resources. Owning a personal computer is increasingly fundamental to your success, and investing in a personal computer has incredible rewards. Some Trinity programs, such as Nursing, require students “bring their own technology.” For all other programs, we strongly encourage and endorse that students purchase laptops to facilitate their success.

Through partnerships with Business IT Source and Microsoft, discounted laptops and software are available for purchase and personal use. If you are using your personal computer for academic work at Trinity, it should meet or exceed the minimum computing standards set by Technology Services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I use my financial aid voucher to purchase a laptop through Business IT Source or Apple?
Financial aid options are available with Business IT Source, but not with Apple Education. Please inquire with the Enrollment Services office for more details. You can also purchase laptops from the Trinity Bookstore with financial aid. Please visit the Trinity Bookstore for more details. Alternatively, refund checks or deposits could be used to budget for a laptop of your choice.

Q: Will my personal computer be supported by Technology Services?
Our support with personal computers is limited. Computers sold through Business IT Source or Apple Education come with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty to cover hardware issues.

Q: Do you recommend purchasing a tablet computer?
While students may find tablet computing appropriate for many uses, at this time Technology Services recommends laptops rather than tablets. Tablets are currently not compatible with many of the systems Trinity uses.

Q: Do you recommend purchasing a Google Chromebook?
While Chromebooks are sufficient for most computing needs, they do not fully support ATI Testing services used within the School of Nursing & Health Professions. At this time, Technology Services recommends laptops rather than Chromebooks.
