I&IT is committed to providing continuous support for its key services. These include centralized electronic mail, the campus Internet connection and key enterprise applications such as BroncoDirect and Blackboard.
A key service failure is defined as one that affects a significant portion of a centralized campus IT service.
For example, if a network switch serving a large portion of the campus fails, the repair will be undertaken off-hours.
On the other hand, if a network switch that serves part of a building fails on a weekend, this will be fixed the next business day.
If the university’s main telephone Private Branch Exchange (PBX) is working but a satellite PBX with no off-hours users fails, that will be fixed the next business day.
If a significant portion of the campus with after-hours voice users fails, such as in the student residence halls or apartments, that will be fixed as soon as possible.

Fridays: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

I&IT regularly performs upgrades and maintenance during its normal maintenance windows. These are Thursdays, 9:30 PM to 12 midnight., and Sundays, 5:00 AM to 8:00 AM. During these times, a key service may not be available because it might be in the process of an upgrade. (Note the Sunday morning window may be extended beyond the 8:00 AM ending point with sufficient, written prior notice to the campus community).
I&IT will not be able to address problems deemed to be end-user related during off hours. Examples of these include:
