The Trent Computing Labs are general-purpose computing facilities located across all campuses. The Information Technology Department manages these labs and have loaded devices with Windows software suites and the current list of approved software (“Trent image”).
These labs are for student use only. Trent's current computing policies govern the use of these facilities and should be reviewed before using the Computing Commons labs. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
