Computing Resources for Students

Computer protection

  • All computers being connected to WMUnet (Western's network) must have approved anti-virus software installed and all vendor-supplied security patches applied for the operating system. 
  • For student computers, WMU recommends and supports ClamXav for Macintosh and Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows computers.

Printing

Printing is available in all computer labs on campus, with a 500 pages per semester quota. Students may check their quota by visiting My Lab Printing Account in the My Self-Service channel in GoWMU. This link will show what has been printed, what your quota is, and how much you have left to use. If you have exceeded your per semester quota, you will see how much will be billed to your student account.
