  1. Aug. 5, 2022Help reduce energy consumption on peak energy days

    Did you know? During the summer months, Ontarians experience approximately 15 “peak energy” days, when energy is in the greatest demand. The amount of energy we use on these days typically drives a very large portion of the overall energy costs for the University. And a significant amount of the energy generated to meet this additional load comes from more emissions-intensive gas plants.

  2. July 26, 2022WCMS website maintenance - July 27

    What is happening? Pantheon will be updating the Content Delivery Network (CDN) that is in front of all WCMS sites (plus the campus map, search, and Scholar).

  3. July 26, 2022Migrating R: drive content to SharePoint Online and/or Teams

    What is happening? As an extension of the N: drive to OneDrive project and the move to SharePoint Online, IST will work with Academic Support Units (ASUs) to migrate content from the network file solution, R: drive (\\filed), which uses the NetApp service, to SharePoint Online and/or Teams.  

    Why is this happening? In comparison to the R: drive,SharePoint Online and/or Teams offers a more user-friendly and robust file storage solution, providing a greater amount of storage space and allowing users to access, share, and collaborate on files from anywhere on any device. Visit the Migrating R: drives to SharePoint and/or Teams project page​for more benefits.
