Network outage scheduled for June 15

A three-hour network outage is planned for 4 to 7 a.m. Wednesday, June 15. During this outage there will be no data traffic passing to or from the Administrative Center on 32nd Street.

Because the AC building houses the university's data center, most computer and network resources will be unavailable. The services which will be unavailable include, but are not limited to:

  •  Internet traffic
  • campus web pages
  • Outlook email
  • myWestern
  • Access to student email (via myWestern)
  • Blackboard
  • Banner
  • Web4U
  • Esign
  • Bi-Query
  • Millennium FAST
  • BlackBerry services
  • Library Information System
  • Student Health Services

The maintenance required is on core routers that support the main campus buildings and the data switching equipment that supports AC. If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk at or (360) 650-3333.
