Service Availability

ITS requires about three hours before leaving campus to turn off servers, networking equipment, and perform co-location procedures.
During this transition time:

  • Campus servers and networks will be shut down if called for by the response plan.
  • Database and file servers will be offline during the transition for up to two hours. You will be able to access web pages, but dynamic content, network drives, Banner and so on will be unavailable.

ITS will restore on-campus access to technology after the all clear is given and we can return to campus.
