The purpose of this policy is to regulate wireless network access (i.e., Fordham-P, Fordham-S) on the University’s IT Resources.
This IT policy, and all policies referenced herein, shall apply to all members of the University community including faculty, students, administrative officials, staff, alumni, authorized guests, delegates, and independent contractors (the “User(s)” or “you”) who use, access, or otherwise employ, locally or remotely, the University’s IT Resources, whether individually controlled, shared, stand-alone, or networked.
- User authentication is required before accessing the Fordham-S wireless1 network.
- The University monitors the wireless network for interfering devices to ensure reliable access.
- The University reserves the right to restrict/remove device access to the wireless network to prevent Users from infecting, degrading, or otherwise negatively impacting IT resources.
- Users must not install a personal wireless access point or any other device that interferes with wireless IT Resources.
- Should any such device be detected, the University notifies the User,
- the User is then required to shut down and remove the device,
- if the User does not shut down the device promptly, the University reserves the right to shut down the device.
