Planned Maintenance: Wired Connectivity in Some Areas of Campus – Wed, 11/09

November 2, 2022

On Wednesday, November 9th, 2022, from 6-8 AM, wired connectivity in some parts of campus may be temporarily interrupted while UMass Amherst Information Technology (IT) performs network maintenance. Wireless connectivity will not be affected.

While minimal impact is expected, we recommend that members of the campus community who work in the buildings listed below:

  • Postpone operations during the maintenance window and back up critical data.
  • Check the IT website for updates on network status.
  • Connect with the IT professional and/or building coordinator in their area for specific guidance.

Thank you for your patience as we implement new security controls intended to increase the resilience of our IT infrastructure and strengthen protections for the campus technology environment. As part of the migration process, architecture changes are being applied to the firewall, which could possibly impact users. This maintenance window is part of an ongoing initiative that will expand to other areas of campus in the future.

To report connectivity issues outside the maintenance window, please contact the IT Service Desk at
