Thursday, June 13, 2024

What is happening? As part of the core equipment refresh project, the virtual private network (VPN), which allows members of the University community to connect to campus resources from a remote location, is being migrated to new equipment.

When is this happening? Thursday, July 11, between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m.

What is the impact? The University’s VPN service will be unavailable during the maintenance window.

What do I need to do? No action is required. Client configurations will be updated automatically once they connect to the VPN service following the maintenance window.
