It’s Back-To-School Time Again!

Fall semester 2016 is here! If you are a new student or faculty member, welcome. If you’ve been around a while, welcome back.

To help with the back-to-school rush, the UMKC IS Call Center will be open this weekend:

  • Saturday, August 20th from 11am to 5pm
  • Sunday, August 21st from 12pm to 6pm

Information Services will also have staff on-site at Volker campus residence halls:

  • Friday, August 19th from 12pm to 5pm (Oak Hall classroom)
  • Saturday, August 20th from 12pm to 5pm (Oak Hall classroom)

We encourage students with questions or connectivity issues to visit the on-site staff during one of these times.  If you have any other questions, or would like to learn more about IT resources at UMKC please visit our Getting Started with IT Resources for Students guide at: http://www.umkc.edu/is/gettingstarted/students/

If you are a new faculty member, or are curious about what IT resources are available to faculty, visit our Getting Started with IT Resources for Faculty guide at http://www.umkc.edu/is/gettingstarted/faculty/.

Safe Computing Tips!

While it is always important to ensure your computer is up-to-date now is a good time to double check your settings to ensure a smooth process connecting to SafeConnect and getting online in the residence halls.

Please check Windows Update on Windows and Software Update on Apple OSX to ensure your computer is fully updated and patched.  It is also important to ensure your mobile phones are updated as well as they can have similar security concerns as computers.  On Apple iOS this is done under Settings -> General -> Software Update and on Android under Settings -> About -> System Updates.

It is important to run current anti-virus software on Windows and OSX as well.  More information about anti-virus can be found here: http://www.umkc.edu/is/support/services/anti-virus/.

If you have any questions please contact the UMKC IS Call Center.
