Telecommunications and Network Services

Mission Statement

The mission of Telecommunications and Network Services at Humboldt State University is to excel at providing telecommunications and network communication services on campus. Our goal is to strive to provide a top quality, high value technological infrastructure. We shall promote and support Humboldt State University's goals in providing access to information and resources that enhance the Academic teaching and learning experience.

Security :: Personal Responsibility

Freely-available computing, communication, and information resources are so key for everyone at HSU that it is imperative everyone recognizes the need for responsible use. Irresponsible and inappropriate use of computing resources risks not only the security, even the availability, of those resources but also puts individuals and the University at risk of legal action by any party that becomes a victim of the consequences of such behaviors.

Smart Classrooms :: Student Use Policy

Smart Classrooms are equipped with instructional technology by Classroom Technology Services. Academic Affairs funds these services for the purpose of supporting HSU faculty in their classroom instruction. Periodically, faculty may require students to use this technology to complete required coursework. Students may do so if they meet the following criteria:

Software :: Acquisition Policy

Policy relating to the acquisition of software for use in the Interdisciplinary Computer Labs is documented in University Management Letter 84-3.

Following are the most important take-aways from that policy document:

Policies :: Lab Policies

It is important for all users of Humboldt State University's computing lab resources to recognize that we are all responsible for the well-being and continued availability of the computing, network, and information resources we use. While it is natural for universities to promote the open exchange of ideas, an open computing network can be vulnerable to abuse or misuse.

Accessibility :: Workstation and Lab Accessibility

There are about 1,100 computer workstations available to students at Humboldt State University. Some of these are single workstations, some in computing laboratories managed by departments for discipline-specific instruction and use, some in laboratories managed by Academic Computing and available for general campus use, and others in facilities managed by service units that provide information and online services to students, such as the Testing Center. No matter how these workstations are situated and managed, they must be reasonably accessible.
