Loyola University Wireless Lan Policy



Wireless networking is a fast emerging technology and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Wireless networking, which supplements Loyola’s existing wired infrastructure, offers many benefits to the University community. Loyola has deployed a secured wireless network solution to provide robust access to the community while protecting the university’s assets.
This policy outlines a common set of procedures and operational criteria, in order to effectively manage all wireless LANs.  Due to the characteristics of Wireless technology, all wireless deployments must be planned and managed in a controlled manner.
Wireless Infrastructure Deployment and Use
a.    All wireless access points connected to the Loyola’s network must
1.    Be approved and deployed by the Office of Information Technology
2.    Conform to Loyola’s equipment standards
3.    Be deployed on the Loyola wireless VLAN
b. Information Technology will disable any non-approved device. The offending device will be disconnected from the network without prior notice.
c. Users of the wireless network are responsible for their own computer equipment. The University accepts no responsibility for any loss or damage to your machine as a result of connection to the wireless network.
d. Users have the responsibility to ensure that they are running up to date anti-virus software and that the operating system is fully patched with the latest service packs and hot fixes.
e. Users must authenticate to the wireless network for each session.
