Kent State University Geauga
Acceptable Use Policies
The Geauga Campus Computer Labs are provided so that all students can make use of the latest computer technologies for everything from typing papers to researching areas of interest on the Internet. The staff is here to answer any questions you might have concerning the wide variety of available applications. Because of the sheer power and flexibility offered by these applications and the connection to the World Wide Web everyone must be aware that they have to use these resources responsibly.
Following these simple guidelines will ensure that everyone will continue to have full access to all the applications and options that computers can offer today.
Access to the "the Network" including all labs, hardware, software, and peripherals at Kent State University Geauga, is a privilege and can be revoked at any time for: breaching security; intentionally breaking or disabling equipment; hooking up external devices, without express permission; copying or installing software to/from KSUG computers; using a fictitious login or using someone else's login; trying to gain access to restricted areas of the network; or in any way abusing or misusing access to computers, peripherals, or the network. Many of the above offenses will result in expulsion from Kent State University. The above list is to act as a guideline and is not intended to be all inclusive - other behaviors may be considered inappropriate and may be punishable - when in doubt ask the Computer Center Manager or other IT staff. To protect yourself, do not engage in any improper activities and report any suspicious activities for investigation. This policy is in addition to Kent State University Policy #3342-5-41, and any other policies related to technology, e-mail, and student conduct.
