Warning: New Phishing Scheme

Please be aware of recent attempts to gather login, password, and other secure personal or College data from Bryn Mawr College community members.

Be on the lookout for messages that appear to be from professors offering “remote work” for money. This is a scam. For details, see this blog post from the University of Michigan.

Do not click links or respond in any way. Delete the message or report it as Phishing in Outlook. If you believe you’ve given your information to a phisher, immediately change your password and contact the Help Desk.

Email scams come in many forms. While we work to keep you informed, attacks are increasingly diverse and sophisticated. It’s not possible for us to warn you of every message before you see it. Be cautious and suspicious. If you ever have a question or suspicion, don’t hesitate to contact the Help Desk.

Contact the Help Desk with questions: help@brynmawr.edu, 610-526-7440, or lits.brynmawr.edu.

Resolved: Trouble Printing for Some Community Members

Update 5/3: The issue has been resolved and printing via “canon@brynmawr.edu” is enabled.


LITS is investigating an issue that is preventing print jobs from being released when people email “canon@brynmawr.edu”. Printing directly to Canons via an installed print queue is working normally for all College owned computers and personal PCs.

For help installing a print queue, community members can use this document or reach out to the Help Desk at help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440. Please also contact the Help Desk with any questions or concerns.
