Hastings College students who live in the dorms can connect to the Hastings College computer network using their own computers. Once connected students can access their e-mail accounts, library services, and the Internet from their dorm rooms.
For a computer to connect to the network it will need to be configured with an Ethernet network adapter, standard with most pc’s, and an Ethernet cable for connecting the pc to the Ethernet wall jack in each room (the blue wall jacks.) Cables are available in the Bronco Bookstore.
All students with computers connected to the campus network are required to purchase virus security software and ensure that the software is kept up to date with current virus signatures. The Office of Information Technology can provide assistance installing this software.
Hastings College does not provide wireless networking in the residence halls or campus houses. The college only supplies ethernet connections that students can connect their computers to using an ethernet cable.
However, in and effort to provide some wireless networking in these living areas we have implemented a program that allows students to use their own wireless routers, as long as they follow the guidelines established by The Hastings College Office of Information Technology. These guidelines are put in place to secure access to the HC computer network, for only students living in the residence halls, and to ensure that information transmitted in the wireless areas is kept private.
Anyone wishing to connect a wireless router to the network from their dorm room must bring that device to the IT Helpdesk in the Hazelrigg Student Union for registration and configuration.
Anyone connecting a wireless router to the network without going through the Hastings College Office of Information Technology is in violation of campus policy and will lose network privileges and be subject to disciplinary action by the Office of Student Affairs.
Students who would like assistance getting their computer ready to connect to the network and instruction on how to access network services can call Erik Nielsen at extension 7738 to set up an appointment.
Each student is allowed one PC connected to the network. Connecting more than one computer or any other equipment (i.e.: wireless routers) is prohibited without written permission of the Chief Information Officer.
