Policy Documents - It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with HSU's policies for responsible computing, web development, and conditions of use for University computing equipment.

Virus Protection - Computers can easily become infected with viruses and other malware simply by connecting to the Internet as well as by the more traditional means of sharing files, using removable media or drives, or over email. HSU-owned computers are protected and kept up-to-date automatically; if you want to connect a personally owned computer to HSU wired or wireless networks, that computer must be protected using one of the HSU-recommended antivirus programs.
