Bringing a computer to campus? Our guidelines and requirements will get you acquainted with the Washburn computing environment.

Update your operating system and anti-virus software definitions before arriving on campus and you will get online more quickly.  When arriving on campus, your computer will be scanned for viruses and operating system updates. After your computer gets a "clean bill of health", connect your computer, agree to the terms of the network connection agreement and you will be online.
