University Laptop Program

At the University of the Incarnate Word  we are proud of our innovative technologies programs that have led the way at colleges and universities nationally.

  • Our fully networked campus is also fully wireless.
  • Students can access the internet anytime and anywhere on campus.
  • We’ve been a “laptop university” for years, which means that all students have the opportunity to purchase the latest in mobile computing if they don’t already own a laptop computer.

Through our partnership with both Dell and Apple, students now have the choice of purchasing a “traditional” laptop , Mini notebook, or an iPad from UIW.

We are no longer accepting orders this semester.  Please check back with us in June to see the new models we’ll have available.

UIW expects every undergraduate to come to school with  a laptop computer.  You can choose to purchase a computer from us, or you can purchase it elsewhere and bring it to school.

There are advantages to purchasing the laptop through the University.

  • We use the latest technology-our machines incorporate high speed processing and high capacity data storage in a portable unit that will meet your needs.
  • We load the computer with software that will support your studies.
  • Our total campus environment is wireless which means computing in a classroom, a dorm room, under a tree, or on a picnic bench wherever students gather.
