CSULB Computer Policy Overview
Use of this CSULB Internet account and all of your campus computing activity must be in accordance with the Policy Governing Access to and use of CSULB Computing Resources. The policy is available online at http://www.csulb.edu/~policy. Use of your account shall constitute acceptance of University policy.
The right of access to University computing resources is analogous to, and in many ways an extension of, the right of access to the University library and other instructional facilities. Access to these resources is granted to an individual by California State University, Long Beach solely for the grantee's own use.
All users, in turn, are expected to exercise common sense and decency (due regard for the rights of others) with respect to the public computing resources, thereby reflecting the spirit of community and intellectual inquiry at the University. Access is a right that may be limited or revoked if an individual misuses the right or violates applicable University policies or state or federal laws.
All users are highly encouraged to read the Policy before any other activity. Any violation or attempt to violate these principles constitutes misuse. Violations may include but are not limited to:
- User access is granted to an individual and may not be transferred to or shared with another without explicit written authorization by the appropriate system administrator or designee.
- User access to computing resources is contingent upon prudent and responsible use.
- You may not use computing resources for any illegal or proscribed act.
- You may not use computing resources for any commercial purpose without prior written authorization from the appropriate Vice President.
Computing resources must be shared among users in an equitable manner. The user may not participate in any behavior that unreasonable interferes with the fair use of computing resources by another.
Special Note about Updating Your BeachID Password
If you have configured your mobile device(s), such as laptops, smartphones, iPads, to connect to campus wireless networks or synchronize to campus email, you must update your password on these device(s) whenever you change your BeachID password in order to maintain connectivity. If you do not do so, you may unintentionally lock your account as your devices try to connect to campus resources with your former password.
