Technology Services

Acceptable Use Policies

The Acceptable Use Policies are located at http://www.trevecca.edu/its/Acceptable.Use.Policies. By using the technology provided by Trevecca Nazarene University, you agree to abide by the Acceptable Use Policies. Please read the Acceptable Use Policies in their entirety to ensure that you understand all the terms and conditions contained therein:

Network Acceptable Use Policy

E-Mail Acceptable Use Policy

Internet Acceptable Use Policy

Wireless Acceptable Use Policy

Any violation of these University policies may result in disciplinary action, including the termination of your network, e-mail, and/or internet access.

TWO IMPORTANT RESTRICTIONS

  1. You may not attach any kind of wireless device to any network jack anywhere on campus, including dorm rooms. Wireless devices found connected in dorms will be confiscated by resident director/assistants and returned to students at the end of the semester.
  2. You may not have any peer-to-peer (P2P) software installed on your computer if using a TNU internet connection. If Campus Manager finds any P2P software on your computer, whether such software is being used or not, your computer may be unable to access the Internet or TNUnet.

Network Account

After becoming fully registered students, which includes submitting all required paperwork and fulfilling all financial obligations, ITS will create unique network and e-mail accounts for each student. Please note that this process may take 24-48 hours.

Your network username will comprise your first initial, middle initial and last name. For example, if your name is David M. Smith, your network username will be dmsmith. If you do not have a second name or initial, your network username will comprise your first initial and last name. We will resolve duplicate name conflicts by dropping a middle initial (if one exists) or by adding a numeral at the back of the user name. For example, in the case of a conflict for Donna M. Smith, her network username will be dsmith, or dmsmith1 (if dsmith is already taken).

Your initial network password will be 10 digits long; comprising the last 4 digits of your SSN followed by the last 6 digits of your student ID number. If you do not have an official social security number, please contact the ITS HelpDesk for assistance. The first time you logon to the network, you will be prompted to change your password. Your new password must be 7 digits, comprising letters (upper and lower case) and numbers. At least one letter must be upper case. As a security measure, your password will expire every 90 days and you will be required to change it (can't use same as previous 4 passwords).

Campus Manager

The University uses technology called Campus Manager to provide all students and employees with a campus network that is protected from unauthorized users and which operates at the highest possible level of performance. Specifically, all computers using our network will be scanned by Campus Manager to ensure they are healthy and can be granted network access. Your computer is your personal property and you are solely responsible for ensuring that it is healthy enough to be connected to our campus network. More information about Campus Manager is located on the ITS website at http://www.trevecca.edu/its/internet.access

After becoming a fully registered student, you must first logon to the network and change your initial password BEFORE attempting to register your computer in Campus Manager. You can do this on any lab computer or public computer in the library as well as through Citrix.

Citrix

Whether you live on or off campus, you will be able to access the campus network via advanced network technology called Citrix. To do this, you will need to download and install the Citrix Web Client on your personal computer or laptop. There is no charge for this software. For detailed step-by-step installation instructions, go to http://www.trevecca.edu/its/Citrix.

MyTNU (Intranet Site)

MyTNU is our campus intranet where you will find Campus Announcements, a Campus Calendar, Prayer Requests, Classifieds, Contact Information, Technology Instructions, and many other Resources. You can access MyTNU from basically any internet connection on or off campus at http://mytnu.trevecca.edu.

Computer Labs

There are several public computer labs on campus that you can use. For resident students, there is also a well-equipped lab available in every Residence Hall. The times when the public labs are available throughout the year, can be found on the MyTNU site and at http://its.trevecca.edu/lab.schedule.

E-Mail (Live@edu)

TNU has partnered with Microsoft to offer our students a web-based, hosted e-mail service called, Live@edu. Some of the benefits include a 10GB mailbox with up to 20MB attachments. Live@edu has the familiar look and feel of Microsoft Outlook. Your TNU e-mail address will be username@mail.trevecca.edu. For example, David M. Smith's e-mail address will be dmsmith@mail.trevecca.edu. Once you graduate you can keep your TNU e-mail box as alumni. Your address will simply change to reflect alumni status. For example, dmsmith@mail.trevecca.edu will become dmsmith@tnualumni.trevecca.edu.

Trevecca employees will use your TNU e-mail account for all official University business. However, for your personal communications with family, friends and other students, if you wish to use a personal mail account such as Yahoo!, Windows Live, Gmail, etc. you may certainly do so. E-mail instructions are located at http://its.trevecca.edu/Live/Students.

Windows Live

Windows Live Skydrive (25GB of password protected online storage)

Self-Service Access

This includes your course information, grades, unofficial transcripts, account balances, and chapel attendance. Traditional undergraduates will also use this site to register for courses.

You can do this on any lab computer or public computer in the library as well as through Citrix (see above Citrix section for more info).
