All Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services will be unavailable on Monday, February 18th from 12:01 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. while we work to perform essential hardware and software upgrades to the university network.
Since all ICT services rely on the network, they will not be accessible for this two-hour period. Affected services will therefore include the usask network, telephones, internet including wireless connections, email, PAWS, SiRIUS, UniFi, U of S Course Tools (Blackboard), and all other institutional and college-based IT services.
We recommend that any persons who are required to work during this time should ensure they have access to a cell phone in the event of an emergency.
The Campus Safety line at 966-5555 will be unaffected and remain operational throughout this time.
We would appreciate your patience during this outage. Please know we scheduled this work for the early morning hours to minimize disruption to the university community. The outage is required to complete the last phase of the network upgrade begun last December.
We expect all ICT services to be operating normally after 2:00 a.m. on Monday, February 18th.
