DIIS is continuing our work to upgrade the Internet connections for the campus.  While we continue that work, there will be no Internet connectivity during our maintenance window of midnight to 6am on Thursday, January 12th. 

The objective is to improve reliability and performance by replacing outdated equipment and increasing our capacity to 2 Gigabit/Sec. The upgrade will impact the ability to access many systems and services (Outlook email, Sakai, myHome, Parnassus, etc.) based on whether you are on or off campus. See the chart of system availability for details.
