Laptop and Hotspot Program
Making sure Mercy students have access to technology
Internet for All
Mercy University received a $2.6 million grant from the Biden-Harris Administration to help us work toward making sure each student has access to the technology, technological education and support they need to succeed.
Our Internet for All initiative provides an amazing opportunity for eligible students to receive free laptops and access to high-speed internet throughout their time at Mercy.
No only can you use your laptop while you attend Mercy, you also get to keep it after you graduate!
Mercy Distributes first of 800 Laptops and Wi-Fi Hotspots to Students
We are excited to have started distributing technology to our students. At events across campus starting on March 22 students have started to receive individual laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots with the goal of giving them better access to technology and to facilitate their education during their academic careers.
We are here to Help
If there are any issues with your device or if you need any help using your device please reach out to our IT specialist Gregory Weiner at email@example.com.
If you have any questions on the program or your eligibility reach out to our project manager Dayanna Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digital coaches support students in the laptop and hotspot program by providing personalized guidance, troubleshooting, and motivation for an improved online learning experience. If you need any help feel free to reach out to Ana Eugenio: email@example.com & Gillian Fraser: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eligibility is based on financial status, with priority given to students in highest need.
The application process involves completing an interest form. A Digital Coach will follow up shortly after form submission to provide a final decision on approval.
Students do get to keep the laptop permanently after graduating from Mercy. The laptop and hotspot are provided for enrolled students to support their studies but become their property once they complete their degree program.
If your provided laptop breaks or becomes damaged, replacement options are available on a limited basis. Students may receive up to 1 additional laptop replacement during their enrollment in the program, depending on the nature of the damage and current availability of equipment.
For minor issues or malfunctions, our IT support staff will attempt repairs so the original laptop can remain in use. In cases of significant damage, students should alert their digital coach or our IT help desk to report the issue.
