1 – Computing Security: It’s Up to You

Visit the Information Security home page and learn about keeping SU networks and data, and your data, identity and devices, safe from hackers, thieves, viruses, worms, Trojans and other Internet predators. Please review the Security 101 section which presents best practices that form the foundation for all your security-related activities.

2 – SU Network User Responsibilities

Since you’re going to be using the Syracuse University networks and computing resources you are responsible for reading and understanding the University’s Information Technology policies.

3 – Once you’ve finished 1-2 above:

Verify that your network connection is working by visiting the Syracuse University home page. You’ll be taken to the main SU home page, where you can explore further, and visit your favorite online sites and services.


Use of wireless access points (including routers and Airports) and Mi-Fi/personal hotspot devices is not permitted on campus. Such devices do not work or co-exist with the wireless network and will disrupt it, interrupting service to users. Please contact ITS if you have any questions about this policy.
