Computing & Software​

Responsible computing increases reliabity for everyone.
Please remember that your computing activities can impact GRU's research, educational, and clinical activities. In accordance with the Acceptable Use of Information Technology all users, including faculty, students, employees, and visitors, are expected to refrain from activities which consume resources unnecessarily or otherwise decrease network performance and reliability for the GRU community. This includes but is not limited to peer-to-peer music and movie sharing and video service hosting.
If you are unsure or you have any questions about acceptable use of computing resources on campus, please contact the Technology Service Desk at 1-4000.
ITS offers software site licenses to the GRU community at discounted rates. Sometimes software is even free, including free anti-virus software.
File storage and backup
It's important to keep your programs and files organized and back up your files regularly to avoid a major data loss. GRU provides file server space for all faculty and staff for storing their personal as well as departmentally shared folders and documents. Areas are also provided for applications which need to be shared on the network and for file transfers other people or workstations.
Hardware recommendations
GRU recommends that students bring computers that meet its minimum hardware specifications to maximize their use of GRU IT resources.
