Does Wayne State have regularly scheduled system maintenance periods?

C&IT performs periodic system maintenance to implement updates and ensure all systems are working properly. There are two regularly scheduled maintenance periods:

 

  • Sunday 2 - 8 a.m.
  • Thursday 6 - 8 a.m.

 

Urgent and emergency updates are installed as soon as possible.
