Beginning June 1st, the spaces designated for employee parking in the Visitor Lot will no longer be available and this lot will be restored to Visitor Parking only.
The parking spaces on the south side of the Visitor Lot were designated for employee parking during the renovations in Hill Center while G-Lot was taken off line for construction vehicles. G-Lot has now been restored back to employee parking, with the exception of the few parallel spaces along the rock wall, which are still marked for construction vehicles.
Please contact Parking Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (607) 274-3756 with any questions.

On Wednesday, May 21st ITS will be performing extensive work on the IC web infrastructure which will result in a 2-3 hour downtime of websites and web services starting at 6:00 AM.
The main IC website, as well as myHome, myIthaca, and HomerConnect will all be unavailable during the downtime. While the normal IC website content will not be available, people who attempt to access www.ithaca.edu will be re-directed to a temporary web page that will provide direct links to the following major services:
All other Web services will be unavailable. We'll make every effort to have the work completed by 8:00 AM, but if complications arise the downtime may extend to as late as 9:00 AM.
Note that myHome is set as the default browser Web page on many campus computers, and will display a "page not found" message during the downtime.
