NOTE: Due to the release of vendor updates and patches outside ITS control, any university system may experience brief intermittent outages.  Because these updates may be released any time it is not possible to include them all in this list. If you are not able to access a system during the maintenance hour from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Friday, please wait a couple of minutes and try again.  If you continue to experience problems, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your patience.  If you have questions regarding these outages, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or helpdesk@uwplatt.edu.
