Students in the Resident Halls
To effectively guard against computer viruses, RMU is pleased to announce that Sophos anti-virus is our licensed software of choice.
Licenses have been purchased to protect student-owned PCs and the RMU Residential Networks. Resident students are required to have active anti-virus software running on PCs connected to the network. Sophos is not required if an active anti-virus software (that receives regular updates) is already installed.
Note: Only resident students may download Sophos Anti-Virus for free!
Faculty and Staff
Licensing is now extended to all actively employed RMU faculty and staff for home use.
