Computing and Technology Services
Student computer services include a Green Mountain College email account, network and internet access. In order to have GMC Internet services available in a residence hall room, students will need to meet the minimum system requirements established by the Computing and Technology Services and purchase an approved network interface (Ethernet) card. (See this link for detailed information: Network Compatibility http://www.greenmtn.edu/computer_services/network.aspx
Students will not incur Internet and email usage charges unless they choose to use an alternate Internet carrier. Green Mountain College assumes no liability for service. The College does restrict access to parasitic servers such as NAPSTER.
Students are responsible for routinely checking their College email account. As part of new student orientation, all incoming students may participate in a hands-on introduction to the College's networking facilities. The faculty and administrative staff of the College routinely communicate with students via GMC email and students should check their College email account throughout the day.
