Computer Viruses

Due to the proliferation of computer viruses, all students are required to use anti-virus software on their personal computers before connecting to the University network. The Office of Information Services provides each student with Antivirus software at no additional cost via the Software Download Center accessible via support.up.edu. Failure to have virus protection software, the proper patches, or to have the software installed correctly may result in the loss of network access. Additionally, any student’s network account or computer that the Office of Information Services believes is infected with a virus will have his or her network access cut off until the computer can be inspected, cleaned, and proper virus protection software installed.

Residential students may obtain this software from Pilots UP or it can be provided by the Information Services Help Desk at (503) 943-7000.
