Return to Network Information
We at University Pointe Apartments are dedicated to providing a reliable network environment to facilitate education, research, employment, operations and approved business services for the apartment community. The apartment community shall be defined as all currently lessees.
The University Pointe Network (commonly referred to as "UPAnet" or "The Network") includes all physical cabling, all Dial-Up access (if applicable in the future), Comcast Cable Modem Service provided through UPAnet, Wireless technologies at UPAnet, Virtual Private Networking, and all remote locations which are connected directly to UPAnet.
In our effort to provide a secure and reliable networking environment, we reserve the right to monitor network activity to aid in the solving of problems encountered with or on the UPA network. We also reserve the right to modify this policy at any time. The current revision can be found at http://network.universitypointeapartments.com
Any computer, peripheral or network capable device connected to UPAnet must belong to or be hosted by an individual who is a Current University Pointe Apartment lessee. These devices are to be in good working order and designed not to interfere with other devices connected to UPAnet or the network operations. These devices must be used for school, work, research, and enhancing your mind related activities. UPAnet reserves the right to restrict access to devices which are connected to the network through MAC Address or IP address blocking. Please use our DHCP server for your ip address. If a static ip is desired please email us for further information. A device may be blocked if there is traffic from non DHCP clients.
The Owner or Responsible Party (RP) for a device connected to UPAnet must have a valid email address to facilitate contact if there is a problem with the device. The Owner or RP is responsible for the use or misuse of the device that is attached to UPAnet.
Security measures should be taken to ensure that the device connected to UPAnet is not vulnerable to compromise. Compromised or problem hosts connected to UPAnet will be blocked until they are repaired. Recommended actions for devices connected to UPAnet include: fully patched Operating Systems; current anti-virus software and virus definitions; secure passwords, personal firewalls, and intrusion detection software. More information on this can be obtained at http://www.universitypointeapartments.com.
