Make sure you have everything you need to work from home:

Stay secure

  • Keep your Operating System, Browser, and Applications patched to current releases
  • Use Antivirus software (keep it updated too) and enable the firewall on your computer
  • Avoid visiting unknown websites or downloading software from untrusted sources. 
  • Beware of phishing messages. 
  • Keep your data in the cloud (BoxGoogleZoom, etc) instead of downloading it to your computer

Stay informed

  • University leadership will continue to send regular updates via email. Please monitor your email account closely for the latest information.
  • Your Dean and/or department may provide additional details regarding expectations for instruction and support resources.
  • All current students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in HOYAlert, Georgetown’s mass notification system used in the event of an emergency situation or incident. HOYAlert (emails and texts) will continue to be used to notify students, faculty and staff about changes in the university’s operating status. You can read more about HOYAlert on the emergency management site.
