Update for R25 Users

UW-IT in Seattle is making a change on how they provide the R25 Room Scheduling software to the UW Bothell campus. Unfortunately this change will make accessing this system a little more complicated from your desktop but we believe we have captured the few extra steps you will have to take in this help document. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but it does keep this resource available. Please take a moment to test these instructions out. If you have any problems please contact us. Seattle will make this change permanent on March 12th and at that time they will be turning off the current method of accessing R25 so please take whatever time is necessary to familiarize yourself with this new process.

Data Privacy:

Data Privacy is important at UW Bothell.  There have been many news stories over the past couple of years that have put data privacy in headline news. For example this week’s story on the University of Maryland where more than 300,000 personal records for faculty, staff and students were compromised in a computer security breach.  These stories have ignited debates, and prompted questions, about the increasingly complex relationship between individuals, the online data they create or is about them, and how that data is protected, used and shared.  Privacy is a complex topic – the definition of privacy itself varies widely – but there are steps people can take to protect privacy and personal information the best they can. Here at the University of Washington Bothell we take Data Privacy seriously.  Here are some steps that help us achieve the goal of safe guarding the data of our campus community:

Implementing these tips and advice, help make the Internet safer, more private and secure for all.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact UW Bothell IT.

Print Code Not Working?

If your print code is not being accepted, we recommend that you use your departmental access code temporarily.  If you are unsure of your departmental access code, please contact your departmental administrator or program coordinator and they should be able to assist you. For a more permanent fix, please contact Budget, Fiscal and Auxiliary Services who can issue a new code to you or your department.  Please email Cynthia Yee or Maria Jimenez  for assistance with this and they will generate a new code for you.
