Acceptable Use

Use of MSU ResNet services is a privilege, and it is the responsibility of each user to utilize these services appropriately.

Morehead State University provides network connection services in the residence hall rooms and other University owned housing facilities.

Use of this service is a privilege, and it is the responsibility of each user to utilize these services appropriately. By connecting a host/computer to ResNet, users are bound to and required to adhere to all aspects of the Technology Resource Acceptable Use (PG-55) policy as well as any and all university, city, county, state and federal regulations. In addition, users of MSU ResNet are required to adhere to the following terms of acceptable use.

  • Users will refrain from abuse and excessive use of the finite resources and hosts connected to ResNet and the MSU network. Users will also refrain from abuse and excessive use of hosts and services outside of ResNet and MSU.
  • Users must not illegally download or share copyrighted movies, music, software, or games.
  • As the intent of ResNet is to provide users with access to outside services, users will not attempt to run any unauthorized services.
  • Users will not attempt to circumvent the ResNet firewall or any other established network services.
  • Users will not modify or tamper with any ResNet network wiring, hardware, or jacks.
  • Users are responsible for all network traffic originating from their host.
  • Users are prohibited from installing personal routers (wired or wireless) to the network. Routers may disrupt the network and introduce unnecessary security risks for other residence hall students.

Any actions that are deemed a violation of these polices may result in a termination of services. Users are subject to any applicable university and/or criminal sanctions and procedures. For more information, questions, or to report an abuse, contact the Technology Service Center at 783-HELP (4357).
