TRIO offers a full-service computer lab, available and open to current participants in the TRIO programs hosted by Cameron University: Student Support Services, Upward Bound, and Open Doors. The lab provides a quieter and less crowded environment in which students can study, research, learn, and practice computer skills.

The TRIO Computer Lab is comprised of 12 Dell PC's running Microsoft Windows 7. Software available for use includes Adobe Reader and Microsoft Office (Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word). Students also have access to a laser printer and a scanner for academic use.
Laptop Loan Program
Students of the Student Support Services program who do not own their own computers are eligible to participate in our Laptop Loan Program. After being in the program for one full semester, and have attended at least two workshops, students may check out a laptop for a one month period. This innovative program is helping students progress further into success in college.
