Working Off-Campus

Away from LIU?

If you are off-campus, check your email, voicemail messages and calendar using any of LIU's web tools. Be careful while using Internet Cafes as these places are known for hackers whose intent are to steal your personal information. Whenever you are in a public location using public internet devices, be especially careful while logging-in and out of the web based services that you are using. Also, quit any web browsers before leaving.

All of the following LIU services assure your privacy and security while you are away from LIU.

  • Outlook - Login to your webmail tool and manage your folders, messages, and calendars.
  • Infoshare - Login to access departmental shared documents and shared calendars.
  • Blackboard - Login to deliver or create course content.
  • My LIU -Login to access faculty grading and/or the student portal.
  • Off-Campus Voicemail - Brooklyn dial: 718 780-4000 Post dial: 516-299-4000

Check before you work Off-Campus:

  • VPN - Enables you to access LIU networked resources from off-campus. Before use, contact your local IT Helpdesk.
  • Local backup - If your primary workstation is the laptop you are taking with you, copy all your files to an external storage device in case your computer is lost or stolen.
  • Official LIU data - Leave as much data on LIU servers as possible! Reduce the risk of sensitive LIU data being compromised through a lost or stolen computer or mobile device.
  • Secure your data -  Make sure to enforce user ID and password Login for all your computing devices, including mobile. Encryption can prevent intruders from breaking into your computer and stealing or using your data even if they have possession of your computer.
