Computer and Network Use Policy

St. John's University, New York (the "University") through the Department of Information Technology (IT), provides an array of computing resources to support the instructional, research and administrative functions of the University, including computing equipment, laptop computers distributed pursuant to the University's Academic Computing Initiative, networks (via wireless and wired access), internet access, computers, terminals, communications networks, printers, software, data files and other relating computing equipment ("Computing Resources"). Agreement and adherence to the following policies is a mandatory prerequisite to use of the Computing Resources and your use of Computing Resources constitutes your agreement to be bound by the policies.

Since rapid change is inherent to computing and information networks, the University reserves the right to modify these policies at any time, except for Academic Computing Initiative policies related to material terms and conditions of ownership, possession and use of University provided laptop computers which policies may be altered only with respect to new recipients of laptop computers. Although the University will make reasonable efforts to announce changes to policies, it is the user's personal responsibility to remain informed of the current policies by periodically checking this Handbook.
