  • The software and network connection portions of the Faciltities Chargeback fee must be paid (note that chargeback payments must be made with University funds).

Licensed Software And Privately Owned Computers

  • Licensed software may be restricted due to license limits, in which case we may not be able to make it available on privately owned computers.
  • Licensed software (including potentially the operating system) must be removed by the CSL staff prior to removal of a privately owned computer from the building.

Insurance And Privately Owned Computers

It is the responsibility of the computer owner to acquire adequate insurance. The CSL, the Staff, CS Department and University take no responsibility for any damages or loss which may occur, for any reason.

  • The owner must pay the minimal hardware portion of the Faciltities Chargeback fee (note that chargeback payments must be made with University funds).
  • If the computer is making use of CSL supported software, then the owner must also pay the software portion of the Faciltities Chargeback fee.
  • The user must abide by the Privileged Access policy.
  • For purposes of appropriate use and access to facilities, the workstation will be considered to be a University facility.
