Anyone found with these devices in their possession will be charged a $100.00 Fee and have devices removed from room. Devices will only be returned after fees are paid. A second offense can result in loss of network privileges in dorms, additional fees, and/or removal of devices without return.


Switches

If approved, it becomes the sole responsibility of the student to purchase equipment that aligns with the spec given by the IT department. Students must ask for approval each school year by submitting a work order through campus housing. Equipment found in room without proper approval will be removed from room. Fees and rules will reflect the penalties of wireless access points and routers.
