Adobe Creative Cloud Launched to Campus

Posted on: No Comments

Faculty/Staff, we are excited to announce that Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) has been released to the campus.  Please, read the instructions below if you would like to install Adobe CC on your computer.

Note:  You can continue to use Adobe CS6 if you already have it installed on your machine.  The instructions below will install Adobe CC as a separate application so you can continue to use both versions.

Instructions for TCU Owned Machines

  • Windows Users
    Installing Adobe CC on a Windows machine will be easy, but it may take up to 3 hours to complete and requires that you connect your computer to the wired network before starting.  Please, visit the Adobe page for additional information.
  • Mac Users
    Installing Adobe CC on a Macintosh will be easy, but it may take up to 3 hours to complete and requires that you connect your computer to the wired network before starting.  Please, visit the Adobe page for additional information.
  • Getting Adobe CC in a Lab
    We will install Adobe CC on lab machines, but only if it is requested. Please, touch base with your department liaison if this is something that you are interested in.
  • Work-at-Home Licenses for Personal Machines
    Adobe Work-At-Home products are available only for current TCU faculty and staff to use on personally-owned devices. Please, visit the Adobe work-at-home page for additional information.

Posted on: No Comments

Current Faculty/Staff,

The TCU Personal wireless network is now available across campus and you can begin to connect your personal devices.  Please, take a few minutes to review the information below before you begin the on-boarding process.

How do I get connected?
It is extremely important that you review the following documents on how to connect your equipment since support for personal devices is limited.

Reminder about Support
At this time, we do not plan to send consultants out to your office to provide assistance with your personal devices.  You may want to sign-up for one of the following BYOD Workshops if you would like hands-on assistance.  We are offering six workshops in the next few days and you can RSVP by using the link below.

New Wireless Network Coming to Campus

Posted on: No Comments

Faculty/Staff,  We are excited to announce that on Wednesday, April 16th we will launch a new network called TCU Personal to the campus community.  This is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) network designed to allow current employees to connect their personal devices to the TCU wireless system.  

You will be required to go through an on-boarding process before gaining access to the Internet.  This system will be able to connect Mac OS, Windows, Android, and iOS (iPhone/iPad) devices. Remember that any support from Information Technology for personal devices will be limited since TCU does not own or manage your equipment.

When will we tell you how to connect?

We plan to send out more detailed information about this new network and how to get connected next week.  Please, watch for a series of messages from us on Monday and Tuesday before you contact the HelpDesk with questions.  

We are also hosting an online informational webinar if you are interested in hearing us talk about this new system.  You can RSVP by clicking the link below.

What do you need to do to prepare?

We recommend that you take some time to ensure that your mobile devices are running the most up to date OS and that your laptops have been updated and are running current virus protection.
