WebCT Outage: July 14, 8am-6pm CST

The Information Resources department has just sent notification of a scheduled maintenance that will cause WebCT to be completely unavailable on Saturday, July 14th, from 8am to 6pm.

Please be sure to plan accordingly for this outage. During this time you will not be able to access WebCT for any purpose, including to take exams or turn in homework.

The electric power infrastructure for the Multipurpose/Administration Building will be upgraded on Saturday, July 14. The upgrade will begin at 8:00 AM and it is expected to be completed by approximately 6:00 PM. Electric power to the Multipurpose/Administration Building will be disrupted during this time. Many University computer systems will not be available to the user community.

The electric power infrastructure upgrade will result in a significant improvement in the electric power source reliability provided to the building and to computer systems. The upgrade will include a permanent generator set that will minimize future adverse impact of electric power disruption resulting from rolling brownouts, blackouts, and other causes of power disruption.

The timing of the upgrade is intended to minimize inconvenience to the various University constituencies due to loss of computer systems and services. The weekend of July 14-15 is the optimal remaining weekend in the summer when this upgrade can occur with minimal impact.

Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as this important project is accomplished.
