Among the resources CME provides to DU affiliates is the use of common computer workstations and a shared printer. As they are for the common good, all users are expected to use them respectfully and responsibly.
If the computers are not already logged on when you arrive, use the username and password provided when you received confirmation of your Building Access.
Use of provided computers and related technologies (printer, scanner, etc) is governed by DU’s UTS Acceptable Use and other policies.
Additionally, the following guidelines apply for users of CME’s common area computers:
- Saving documents. Please don’t save files to the computer. These are semi-public computers, meaning your saved files will be available to anyone else logging on. Moreover, as we’d prefer not to fill up the memory with random files, all personal files will be deleted regularly. Instead, save your files to a jump drive or email them to yourself.
- Downloading software. Don’t. Please don’t use up the memory or risk infecting the computer and users’ files. If we don’t have some software you need for classes or work, please check with Reception to see if we might be able to get it (for future use).
- Playing media. Be considerate. Given that the computers are in a common room, your choice of video and audio are, by default, choices for those around you in the office. Please be mindful of this audience and CME’s commitment to respect for all when deciding what documents, sites and file to access. Even for workstations with speakers, please use headphones when listening to audio.
- Priority for usage is, in order, for: academic coursework, campus organization/event-related work and then general personal/recreational.
- Time of possession. If others are waiting, please limit your usage to one hour total.
Help us be good stewards of your tuition dollars by not printing wastefully.
- Don’t print unless you really need something.
- Remove unnecessary spaces from documents; select only needed pages from larger jobs.
- Select double-sided AND black & white prints unless you absolutely need the color or single-sided hardcopies.
- Recycle scrap paper in provided blue bins.
By taking advantage of these provided resources, you agree to these guidelines. Failure to follow them, including excessive use/abuse of them, may result in revoking an individual’s or group’s use privilege, or even removal of the equipment. Let’s not have it come to that!
