Data Center Outages

Data Center Outages on January 4 and 5, 2014

Both the Office of Information Technology at the Twin Cities Campus and ITSS at the Duluth Campus will perform data center maintenance work on January 4 and 5. We hope that this weekend time during the winter break will result in little impact for students. Nevertheless, you can expect some services that you use regularly, such as Moodle and Grade Reports, to be unavailable during parts of this weekend.

More information is available from ITSS in our December Newsletter.
