Residence Halls, Network Connectivity and Personal Computers Policy

Students in residence halls may connect their notebooks to the Landmark network. This will enable access to the Internet, Intranet, email, and network folders to access files and digital texts.

Although Information Technology Services will make its best effort to assist students with this connection, there may be brands or models of computers or combinations of software that meet minimum requirements but simply will not work with the network.

Each residence room will have access to the Landmark network. This will provide access to the Internet and online resources via a network jack or campus wireless.

Information Technology Services will support network operation up to the wall jack. The student is responsible for the cost of any maintenance, repairs, or enhancements to his or her computer. He or she is also responsible for any changes that he or she makes on his or her computer. Accordingly, if any software or hardware changes cause a privately-owned computer to become inoperable on the network, the student may need to remove the software before the computer can successfully re-connect to the network. He or she may also need to refer to the appropriate end-user warranties and contact the manufacturer or vendor if he or she experiences hardware failures or incompatibilities with peripherals.
