Responsible use of the university's IT resources

Students are required to follow the rules for using the IT resources at the university and sign an agreement to do so.

Antivirus programs

Antivirus programs have become less important as malware has become better at foiling them, but it is still a good idea to use one.

The IT Division recommends Microsoft’s antivirus program for use on a PC. It doesn’t receive the best rating in tests, but it is best in ensuring that other safety functions in the system are not compromised.
