Trinity has invested in a number of modern assistive technology resource rooms called 'Assistive Technology Information Centres', or ATIC for short. There are two ATIC areas on campus and a smaller area in St.James hospital campus.

To access the ATIC room and resources you must complete your application for reasonable accommodation with the Disability Service upon which the student will gain automatic access to this area.
