Network Device Policy

Network devices (router, switch, hub, etc.) are NOT permitted on the university's network at any time unless they are owned by the university and have been put in place by Information Technology (the policy is published in our Information Technology Policies and Legal Requirements web-page). These devices can serve as gateways to our university's internal systems and can result in data theft as well as other malicious activity. Additionally, they can cause conflict with our network protocols and potentially bring down the entire network.

Devices (PC, Mac, etc.) that are not owned and managed by the university CANNOT be connected to our wired network in the administrative offices at any time. However, these devices can be connected to the university's public wireless network.
