Assumption College actively blocks illegal file sharing using Bit-torrent, gnutella, edonkey and Kazaa. Illegal sharing of copyrighted material is not allowed and will actively be monitored and stopped.

Yes. If you live in a residence hall, either you or one of your roommates must bring a wired phone with you, and it must be plugged into the beige telephone wall jack (blue wall jacks are for computers). In addition, all wired phones allow you to make free, unlimited local calls, and we can activate a voice mailbox for your wired phone upon request.
All wired phones connected in residence halls are linked to our 911 system, which tells Assumption’s Public Safety Department where you are calling from. This is critical in an emergency!
We have AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon cell towers on campus.
