Network and Core Systems Availability

Production Systems 

Regular system maintenance time is reserved for one Friday of the month between 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. Some dates may change for Production Systems (i.e. Blackboard, myStThom, Webmail) due to holiday or academic needs.  Please see schedule below.

These systems will be unavailable at some time during the scheduled maintenance window.  Please plan accordingly.

If a scheduled maintenance period conflicts with activities such as registration or final exams, IT will do everything possible to reschedule to accommodate these critical periods.
