IMPORTANT: Update your computer before coming to campus!

To avoid problems when connecting to the Internet from the Residence Halls, you must have up-to-date antivirus and operating system patches.  This includes Macs.

If you haven’t used your computer for a while (or at all), turn it on and leave it on for a day or so, connected to the Internet to download the updates automatically.  You can also update manually by going to and installing the updates.

Similarly, update your antivirus by clicking on the update menu item or button (depending on the type of antivirus).  Again, leaving the computer on and connected to the Internet can do this automatically.

We require up-to-date antivirus for Mac users.    You can download ClamXav for the mac at

Please take a few minutes to make sure you’re updates, and it will save time when you make it onto campus.
