Century Commons' Computer Maintenance and Updates

Century Commons has a dedicated fiber connection with 3MB bandwidth for accessing the internet, including the Odessa College main site and Blackboard. To ensure that you have the fastest possible connection, there are a few things that are necessary to ensure the security of your computer and to enhance your connection speed.

  • Keep your computer up to date with the latest patches from Microsoft.
  • Keep your computer virus free by making sure that your AntiVirus software is up to date.
  • Keep Malware and Spyware off of your computer by having current, up to date AntiSpyware software in place.

Students must also comply with Odessa College's computer use policy for access to the Internet. This can be found at the following site: OC Computer Policy. Residents who are found to be in violation of OC Computer Policy are subject to disciplinary action by the Director of Student Life.
