IT Regulations and Guidelines

Follow these guidelines to ensure your use of IT facilities is acceptable: 

  • Computing facilities are provided for academic study and work purposes
  • Limited personal use of these facilities is acceptable as long as it does not interfere with academic study or work, or contravene any University regulations.
  • Do not use or attempt to use any systems for which you are not authorised.
  • Do not use a workstation which has been logged in by another user without permission.
  • Keep your username and password secure, do not share them with others.
  • Do not attempt to find out or use anyone else's username and password.
  • Do not modify the configuration of your system without authority.
  • Access to 'inappropriate sites' on the Internet is blocked automatically, do not attempt to bypass this system or download pornographic, criminal or offensive material.
  • Do not install or make use of unlicensed software.
  • Do not send emails that are libellous, might bring discredit or embarrassment to the University.
  • Be aware that your use of the facilities (i.e. emails, Internet usage) may be monitored.

It is your responsibility to make sure your use is acceptable - please ask for advice if you are unsure. Failure to observe the regulations may result in you being suspended without warning from use of the University's facilities and appropriate disciplinary action being taken.
