ITS Maintenance Schedule

Information Technology Services schedules weekly maintenance of campus systems every Friday from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. with three exceptions.

Maintenance will be suspended* (i.e. no planned outage) during the following weeks of the FALL and SPRING terms:
  • Friday before classes begin
  • Friday of last week of classes
  • Friday of final exam week

*Every effort will be made to avoid taking systems down during these busy weeks.  However, ITS may change this plan if critical circumstances arise.  In this event, appropriate communication will be sent and posted.

Notification of outages

During the weekly scheduled maintenance window any and all systems, including network connections, may be affected.  Systems affected during the week's maintenance window are announced via email (ITS Maintenance Outage) on Wednesday or Thursday of that week.

NOTE: Effective September 30, 2017, the weekly maintenance email will no longer be sent. Detailed scheduled maintenance notices will be posted to the ITS Knowledge Base News and Facebook as usual.  The campus calendar will display scheduled outage times as well. Emails will be sent in the event of an unplanned outage when appropriate.

Planned outages are also posted to

Extended outages

Periodically, extended outages are required outside the weekly maintenance window.  These will be announced as needed via email as well as the outlets listed above. (See above for upcoming change 9/30.)

Unplanned outages

The communication plan for unplanned outages can be found in ITS Communication - Unplanned Outages
