Comments: Comments Off on Email and network account information for 2016 Graduates

Hello Graduates and Congratulations.

As you move from being a student to being an alumnus, your relationship with our technology services changes, too.

Here’s some information about email and network accounts you may find helpful.


Law School Account

Law School (LawNet) network accounts remain accessible through July 31. Any personal files you wish to take with you must be copied to a USB thumb drive or emailed to another account by that date. Assuming you have printing credits available, you can also print until July 31 with your account.


University Account

Per CUIT guidelines, graduating students’ UNI accounts expire approximately 10 months after graduation.  Your UNI will go through several status changes before finally expiring. It starts out as an active UNI, and over the 10 months after you leave Columbia, it goes through a grace period, then is set to expire, and finally expires. Understanding this process will help you plan for a smooth transition.  Continue Reading…

Your Columbia Law School full-name email address (firstName.lastName@law.columbia.edu) will expire on July 31.


Lifelong Email and Other Email Options

New Student Laptop Loaner Program Pilot from the IT Department

Comments: Comments Off on New Student Laptop Loaner Program Pilot from the IT Department

The IT department will pilot a student loaner laptop program during the Spring 2016 Exam season. This trial period will give you access to different laptop models and give us the opportunity to gauge interest for the future life and size of the program.

Base on your feedback, there are two loaner laptop scenarios:

  1. Non Exam Related Loaner Laptops.
  2. Loaner Laptop For Exams.

Non Exam Related Loaner Laptops
We’ve heard your interest in borrowing a laptop during the academic year for a variety of reasons:

  • Note taking in class
  • Replacement laptop while main laptop is being repaired
  • Forgotten laptop at home
  • etc…

For this scenario, you can borrow a Google Chromebook which run Google’s Chrome OS . These laptops are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and documents residing in the cloud. These laptops are designed to run LionMail, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Courseworks, and many internet based applications (which does not include Examsoft’s Softest).

Loaner Laptop For Exams
We’ve also heard that there are times when a student’s main laptop becomes unreliable or unavailable during, or immediately prior to, exams. Should this scenario occur, you can borrow a MacBook Air laptop which has the advantage of supporting both the MacOS and Windows, and Examsoft’s Softest. Alternatively, PC-based laptops running Windows 7 will also be available as loaner laptops.

So; if you need a laptop, let us know. The laptop loaner process is straight-forward and easy. Sign up @ https://web.law.columbia.edu/information-technology/student-loaner-laptop

We look forward to assisting with your loaner laptop.

Among the respondents, 70 percent reported using Apple devices and they shared a significant number of connectivity challenges. Reports of poor Wi-Fi performance by users of Apple devices coincides with the recent release of OS X El Capitan 10.11.3.
