Hamilton requires all students to install anti-Virus software on their personal computers by the end of the second week of classes each semester.
Failure to do so can result in loss of connectivity to the Hamilton College network until up-to-date anti-virus software is installed.

Software for students

Hamilton College does not license antivirus software for student use, but options for those lacking any protection are listed below. Each offers a free version of their product that provides basic protection. Hamilton does not explicitly endorse any specific anti-virus product(s) for personal/private use.

If you already have anti-virus software installed, simply be sure to keep it updated. Do not install multiple anti-virus programs on your computer, as this can cause conflicts and degrade your computer's performance. If you want to switch to different anti-virus software, be sure to fully uninstall the existing software first.
