Planned Maintenance Periods

IT Services is dedicated to providing a high level of system uptime throughout the academic year. In order to achieve this service level, we perform periodic maintenance activities on core equipment comprised of network switches, servers, telecom equipment, and wireless access points. To minimize disruption to the Colleges business, we make every attempt to perform these activities during non-business hours, wherever possible.

This page is a resource for general maintenance plans during the time period displayed. If you would like more details about the maintenance as it is being done, please subscribe to the IT Maintenance listserv, by e-mailing the Help Desk.
