The University's data network will be unavailable between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 2. All services that depend on an Internet connection or access to the network will be unavailable. This includes access to websites and servers on campus, access from campus to the Internet, as well as access to campus websites and servers from off campus. The service interruption is necessary to complete work that will improve network reliability and minimize vulnerability to power outages.
