Big Leap in Email Quotas
As email now becomes an indispensable tool for communication,
and with different forms of multi-media documents regularly
being exchanged via email, providing sufficient disk quota
to accommodate the email and its associated documents is as
important as providing unfailing and speedy delivery of email.
After reviewing users' needs, current provision, storage resource,
backup time, and manpower, the email quotas for staff and
students were increased to 200MB and 50MB respectively from
23 September 2004. All users are reminded to make good use
of the increased quota by properly managing the Email messages,
backing up important messages and deleting unwanted ones.

Print Quota for Students
After carefully reviewing the usage statistics, despite the
scarce resources available, a print quota system for students
was implemented. Starting from Semester A 2004, all regular
full-time and part-time CityU students are entitled to a print
quota of 400 pages every half year. The print quota will be
reset on 1 January and 1 July of each year and any unused
print quota will not be carried forward. Students are allowed
to extend their print quota twice within each half year at
200 pages/time for free. Other students (e.g. visiting students
who take only a few courses on semester basis) will be allocated
100 pages every half year and no extension on their print
quota will be allowed. If all the quota is used up within
the half year and more quota is needed, a minimum quota of
20 pages at HK$1/page will be added each time and any unused
quota will not be refunded.
quota provided for our students is the most generous among
all local universities, and we hope that they will make good
use of the valuable resource for their studies.
the population of broadband users in the CityU has been fast
growing, it was decided that the modem pool size of the dial-up
service was reduced from 620 to 300 lines in order to wisely
use the limited resources.
