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.
