Residence Hall Network Connection Policy
The following is a list of rules and regulations established by Connecticut State University governing student connections to the campus computer network from within the Residence Halls.
- The student will agree to abide by all CSU and ECSU policies governing the use of campus computing facilities.
- The student will provide a microcomputer or terminal capable of a network connection. (The University will provide, upon request, a list of typical equipment, cables, terminal emulators, and operating systems that can be used to connect to the network.)
- The student is responsible for all installation configuration, and repairs to personal computers and peripheral equipment, including cables, network cards, and software used to connect to the network. The student is responsible for troubleshooting and maintaining their own equipment.
- The student shall follow and implement any instructions given by the Data Center as regards network configuration and addressing. Failure to do so can have a detrimental impact on other students in the residence hall. The Data Center reserves the right to disconnect without notice any equipment which is judged to be causing network problems or does not conform to our recommended configuration.
- Any attempt by the student to break into other's computers, accounts, or other similar destructive behavior on the network will result in the immediate loss of network connection plus result in disciplinary and/or legal action.
- The student will not tamper with or modify in any way, university-owned equipment or the wiring connection in the wall of their Residence Hall room. Failure to comply will result in the discontinuance of network services to the room, as well as any necessary disciplinary and/or legal action. The severity of the violation will determine the type of action that the University and/or the State will take against the violator.
- The University will not store student computer addresses in its Domain Name Servers.
- Network users must comply with all copyright laws or agreements governing the use or duplication of software or other proprietary data.
