Minimum Technology Specifications
Casa Loma College requires that all students, who attend all or a part of their program on-campus, own a laptop computer that meets the minimum specifications.  Laptops are needed for in-class instructional purposes and must be brought to campus, fully charged, every day (starting with orientation).  Although the College doesn’t require any specific model or brand of computer, below are the minimum specifications you will need. Please note these are minimum specs, not recommended specs and you can use either the Windows or Mac platform. Systems that do not meet the minimum specifications may be slower or may not run the  software used in courses. Smartphones, and iPad type devices are not acceptable substitutes for a laptop.

Any reputable business that sells computers can advise you on these specifications.

Students have the option of receiving a college -issued laptop computer as part of their direct institutional charges, or purchasing a laptop computer at their own expense.
