This purpose of this policy is to regulate access to lab resources while preserving the unique learning atmosphere associated with the labs. It establishes standard procedures for the creation, control, and removal of user access.
Access & Account Requests
Access to lab resources is available to Clarkson University students, faculty/staff, and cross-registered students only.
All lab members are authorized to receive basic access, accounts, and use of equipment upon requesting such for a valid academic reason. This includes physical access to the labs/server room, user accounts on systems, the creation of new systems (VMs), and the use of physical lab hardware. Requests are generally approved by a member(s) of the Admin board.
Access & Account Revocation
Lab members must return all keys to the labs in their possession prior to permanently leaving the university or graduating. All accounts, including email, system accounts, and extended privileges on the wiki, will be deactivated/removed within 30 days of the member leaving the university.
If a member becomes inactive for an extended period of time or abuses their privileges, their accounts are also subject to being deactivated at the discretion of the Admin board and the system administrator.
Exceptions to this policy will be evaluated by the Admin board on a case by case basis.
