Protecting your device

What can I do to protect my computer?

  • The responsibility for student-owned devices rests with the student. The College insists that
  • Devices have up-to-date anti-virus and firewall protection installed and correctly functioning
  • Have a robust backup plan in place so that work can continue if a device is lost or becomes damaged.
  • Know the whereabouts of their personal devices at all times and not leave them unattended.

The College strongly recommends

  • A sturdy, strong carry case is used at all times to transport the device to and from school.
  • When purchasing a new device for school,  that families ensure that the device has adequate warranty (check warranty details and plan for needed repairs)
Despite best efforts, breakages and loss are inevitable. 
  • That families ensure insurance plans cover accidental damage, screen damage and battery replacements. The College insurance cannot cover student-owned devices.
