Accessing Campus Computer Network

Windows Users 
If you are planning to bring a Windows computer to campus, you will be required to use anti-virus software for your system and have all the current Windows updates installed. Doing these at home will help ease your transition onto the Gardner-Webb network.


Gardner-Webb offers free Symantec anti-virus protection for all students, faculty and staff. If you currently are using a trial version of anti-virus software that came with a new computer or opt to download Gardner-Webb's provided protection uninstall your current software before coming to campus. The registration process when you first log into the network will direct you to the software download. If you are having issues installing the Symantec anti-virus software, contact Technology Services at (704) 406-4647 for assistance.


Students wishing to use their own protection software must have their virus definitions up to date before coming to campus to ensure you can log-in to the network.


Apple/Mac Users 
If you are planning to bring an Apple computer to campus, you will not be required to have anti-virus software, but you will need to have all Mac OS system updates installed.
