In order to connect to the campus network (and most students want to do this right away), students must have a certain standard of computing software, virus scanning and operating system updates. Failure to meet these standards will result in delays as your machine will need to download and install the components. Additionally, many computers arrive on campus infected with Spyware/Adware type viruses. The network will not allow these machines to connect until they are free of these files. Save yourself some time and clean up your machine before you arrive. Go to the Residential Computing website
to learn about what you need. You can register your computer before you arrive. This will make connecting to the campus network very simple once you move-in.
