The * wildcard SSL certificate will be expiring on April 16, 2017. Find out more by selecting the read more link below. We are identifying all servers and devices associated with this certificate in order to install the replacement certificate.  

There will be intermittent outages between 10:30 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. in various buildings across campus (click 'read more' for full schedule). During this time, there will be rolling outages for all wired network services – eg. VoIP telephones, file servers, Internet and email, meaning you may be able to access services, but it will be intermittent as work is being done. Wireless services will remain available.

All services will be restored by 7:00 a.m. If you continue to experience problems, please contact IT Support ( or 403-220-5555).
