July 17, 2024

On Wednesday, July 17th, 2024, from 7 to 8 a.m., UMass Amherst Information Technology (IT) will perform network reconfiguration in Curry Hicks, Curry Hicks Cage, and Curry Hicks Addition.

  1. Departments can work with their IT support staff to inventory the printers and specialized devices that may be impacted.
  2. Once the maintenance is complete:
    • Computers and printers may need to be restarted.
    • IT support teams may need to check, reconnect impacted devices, and re-establish connections to certain printers.
  3. Departments can report issues related to this maintenance to their IT support or to the IT Service Desk at it@umass.edu or 413-545-9400.
