                   DU provides an integrated environment of information technology networks that support
                   and enhance academic activities. Academic computing capability is provided by numerous
                   laboratories, as well as by campus-wide networked facilities. All laboratories are networked
                   and have access to local and remote servers as well as the Internet. All University buildings
                   and Labs are connected with an up to date fibre optics backbone.

                   3.4 E-mail

                   Student e-mail is the fastest form of communication between DU and students. They are
                   expected to be using e-mail during their University life. All new students shall be assigned a
                   user account and an e-mail address. The account must be activated and it has to be renewed
                   periodically. That e-mail is convenient to access both on and off campus, it is easy-to-use,
                   reliable  and  secure.  DU  considers  e-mail  as  a  formal  channel  of  communication  with  its
                   students where all important information, absence reports and announcing any DU activity
                   to the concern of students are delivered through this email service.
