Code of Conduct for the use of CIS public facilities
This code of conduct applies to all CIS public facilities, including computer classrooms. The main purpose of the code of conduct is to establish an environment where authorised users can make use of the facilities provided in pursuit of their academic activities.
- CIS public facilities are available to all authorised users. The opening hours of each facility are given in the staff and student CIS handbooks available from the CIS.
- Some of the facilities may be booked for particular groups of users at certain times. Details of all such bookings are available on the World Wide Web and are also displayed at each of the locations. During booked sessions only those users for whom the session is booked may remain in the room. All others are asked to leave the room before the booked session begins.
- Some facilities are only available to a subset of the user community (for example to staff and postgraduates). Where this is the case this is clearly indicated at the location itself and in the CIS handbooks.
- The I.T. Facilities should not be used for non-academic activities. The playing of computer games, the sending of non-essential email and other non-essential use of facilities are not permitted.
- Users should only make use of one workstation or PC at any time.
- Users must not leave a workstation or PC which they have logged into unattended; users must follow the recommended logout procedure when they leave a station. Users are not allowed to run any software to prevent others from using the PC or workstation when they leave the station.
- Users must not attempt to open, move, disconnect or in any other way tamper with or attempt to destroy or damage any I.T. equipment.
- Users must not remove, deface or destroy output not originated by them.
- Users must not attempt to connect any items of equipment to a PC, workstation, printer or network connection in a CIS Public Facility.
- Users are asked to co-operate with the CIS in keeping the public locations tidy. Users are asked to remove their output and other pieces of paper from the public facilities and to place unwanted items in the dustbins provided.
- Users are asked to ensure that their hands are clean before using the public facilities.
- Smoking, eating and drinking are not permitted in the CIS public facilities.
- Users are asked to minimise any noise they make so as not to disturb other users.
- Users are asked to report any faults they encounter in using the public facilities to the IT Service Desk.
