University of San Francisco
Computer and Network Appropriate Usage Policy Summary

USF has adopted a University-wide policy intended to allow for the proper use of all USF computing and network resources, effective protection of individual user's equitable access, and proper management of those resources. This should be taken in the broadest possible sense. Access to networks and computer systems owned or operated by USF imposes certain responsibilities and obligations and is granted subject to USF policies and local, state, and federal laws. Appropriate use should always be legal, be ethical, reflect academic honesty, reflect community standards, and show restraint in the consumption of shared resources. Below is a summary of this policy with references to the appropriate sections of the full policy available from the University.
