Some departments have purchased laptops for use by faculty and staff. These are configured with the same standard ITS image, including Microsoft ForeFront Endpoint Protection, our anti-virus software. These laptops will be able to access the CCAC network when connected to a data port or wherever wireless connectivity is available. If your department has procured a CCAC laptop, ITS will need to register it before you connect to the network. Further, the laptop should be brought in for a "laptop check-up" twice per term, to confirm that security updates and patches are applied routinely. This will help to preserve the life of the laptop.
Faculty and staff are welcome to use a personal laptop while on campus, as long as you have registered your laptop with the ITS department. In order to register your laptop:
The standard for Laptops is prescribed here using the minimum specifications. For information on laptops not listed here, please contact your ITS Field Director. All machines will be loaded with the appropriate software which complies with the College standard.
Please note that purchasing equipment outside of the College standards given here will mean that ITS staff cannot fully support your equipment.
