BitTorrent Access

BitTorrent is a protocol for the practice of peer-to-peer file sharing. This protocol allows sharing or distributing large amounts of data via the Internet.

To send or receive files, you will need a BitTorrent client, an application that implements the BitTorrent protocol.

To protect the Amherst College network and data, we will allow BitTorrent use only for academic reasons for Amherst College students, faculty and staff. You must complete a form to request to opt in to using BitTorrent on-campus and state your academic reasons for needing BitTorrent access. A link to the request form is below under Getting Started. Amherst College IT will disable BitTorrent use as needed to proctect the network and will notify those affected.
