Computing and Technology: Technology Policy

Technology Policy

Law students, faculty, and staff are governed by the University of Iowa's Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources policy.

Network services (e.g. Internet, HawkMail, wireless) and University computing resources should primarily be used for University-related educational purposes. Users should engage in safe computing practices by establishing appropriate access restrictions for their accounts, guarding their passwords, and maintaining backup and recovery systems for their files.

Using University networks and equipment for file sharing is prohibited under the technology policy. If you are using the University's network to download music, movies, or other copyrighted material without paying for them, or you are using a file sharing network to illegally disseminate materials that you previously paid to download, you are in violation of the University Technology Policy and are subject to sanctions.
