What we're planning for this semester

Residence Hall Network Upgrades As part of our commitment to keeping our infrastructure current, most residence hall wired network equipment is due to be replaced this year. The equipment arrived in late December and further details will be sent to residence as work in each building is scheduled. Updates will also be available on our Status Page.

Single Sign On Improvements Our Single Sign On system connects you to services like Email, Blackboard, Lynda.com, Atomic Learning, and Kivuto with just one password. Watch for details as we simplify and re-brand this service to make using it even more convenient!

Faculty and Staff "P Drive" Enhancement OneDrive (part of the Office 365 suite) will replace the "P Drive" for faculty and staff. This service allows easy access to your documents from on and off campus and from any device keeping your life and work in sync. Watch for more details later this semester.

 

If you were off campus for the Fall 2016 semester, you may have missed this
