Planned Maintenance: Network Connectivity in Some Areas of Campus – Thurs., 11/10

November 9, 2022
On Thursday, November 10th, 2022, from 6-7 PM, network connectivity in some parts of campus may be temporarily interrupted while UMass Amherst Information Technology (IT) performs network maintenance. Wireless and wired connectivity will be affected, but only for a short period of time.

While minimal impact is expected, we recommend members of the campus community:

  • 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
