On Thursday, December 27th, from 3:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., all Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services may be disrupted or unavailable while we work to perform essential hardware and software upgrades on the university network.
These services include the usask network, wired and wireless Internet connections, email, telephones, PAWS, SiRIUS, UniFi, U of S Course Tools (Blackboard), and all other institutional and college-based IT services.
The Campus Safety line at 966-5555 will be unaffected and remain operational throughout this time.
Please know we scheduled this work for a day when the university is officially closed to minimize disruption to the university community.
We expect all ICT services to be operating normally after 8:00 a.m., December 27th.
Please also note: the ICT Help Desk will be closed from 5:00 p.m. December 24, 2012 until 8:00 a.m. January 2, 2013; during this time the Help Desk email and voice mail will be monitored for urgent issues with wide impact only.
For general information and self-help support over the holidays, please visit our website at ict.usask.ca; the Guides & Resources drop-down menu offers a wide variety of computing guides, instructions and support.
Happy Holidays from ICT!
