Computer Information for New and Returning Students
While all students are welcome to bring
either a PC or a Mac, there are some requirements that must be met before a
computer can be registered and used on the Hollins Network.
Hollins recommends Windows 7 Professional on all PCs coming to campus.
All PC computers are required to have
anti-virus software installed to be able to connect to our Hollins network.
Hollins University uses AVG to protect all of its public, faculty and staff
machines and recommends AVG Anti-Virus to its students. AVG provides a free
well as a paid version (available
here) of their
anti-virus product. While the free AVG product is sufficient for gaining access
to the Hollins Network, we encourage all students to buy the paid version for
Cisco NAC Agent:
Hollins University uses a Cisco NAC (Network Admission Control) to ensure all users on our network are in compliance with our computer requirements. This is an essential step in keeping our computer users safe from the constant threat of malware. In order to connect to our network, all student PCs and Macs must install the Cisco Clean Access Agent. Each time a student connects to the network the CAA will ask for the student's Hollins username and password. The first time a student connects their computer to our network it will prompt them to install the CAA.
