Policies

Access to the campus computing system is a privilege subject to rules of conduct. By using the network connection you agree to abide by all moral, ethical and legal restrictions applying to this privilege. You also agree to abide by the policies published in the TTU Student Handbook. These regulations do not exhaust all possible cases of misuse, and other restrictions, such as copyright laws and the Tennessee Computer Crime Act of 1983, may also apply. Any violation of this agreement will make you subject to disciplinary action by the University, as well as civil and criminal penalties that may be imposed by the state and/or federal courts.

TTU is not responsible for any damage to your personal computer or its peripherals while your computer is connected to the network. This includes hard drives crashes, other accidental data loss, damage to or loss of data files due to viruses, and damage to or loss of data on removable and non-removable media.
