New and returning Bobcats: Make sure you follow these steps to activate your OHIO online services before you arrive for the 2015-16 academic year.
Bringing a Mac to campus? After you connect to our wireless, follow these steps to make sure your Mac stays connected.
As a Bobcat, you are eligible to install Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for free on up to 5 devices. Versions are available for mobile devices, too!
Already have a working copy of Office? No problem. You are not required to use our version of Office.
Make sure your computer is protected against viruses and malware! OHIO's version of Sophos Anti-Virus works better than most home anti-virus programs.
OHIO's free Box storage is a great way to store files online, share those files and collaborate with other OHIO students and instructors.
OHIO also offers free access to Microsoft's OneDrive for Business. OneDrive integrates nicely with Microsoft Office, but it has a smaller maximum file size than Box and does not have as many collaboration features.
Want to print in Alden Library or other labs around campus? Make sure you add some Bobcat Cash to your ID card to cover printing costs.
Bringing a printer from home? Make it a wired printer. Wireless printers do not work on campus!
Illegal downloading or sharing of copyrighted files is not allowed on our network. Please disable any illegal file sharing software before you connect to the OHIO wireless or wired network.
You are welcome to use legal services like Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime, etc. on our network. Just avoid illegal peer-to-peer sharing.
