11.25.4 Physical Security Policy

The University may issue some students a portable computer. It is the responsibility of the student to take all reasonable and prudent measures to protect the computer from theft or damage. Students will be held financially liable for missing computers and for damage to computers beyond ordinary wear and tear. A few protective measures include but are not limited to:

Keep the computer locked up when not in use. Portable computers are small, lightweight and tend to disappear when left unattended. Students must take all precautions against theft.

If traveling with the computer, never check the computer in baggage. Always carry the computer on board the aircraft, train or whatever means of transportation is being used.

Do not leave the computer out in plain sight in an unattended automobile. Theft of portable computers from automobiles is very common and the likelihood of recovery is slim. Always lock the computer in trunk or otherwise hide from view.
