During the University Closure, both central OIT and CLA-OIT will maintain key systems like the college web server, Moodle, the terminal server, email servers, and the Active Directory file servers. Access will be essentially the same as any normal weekend. If you can currently access a University or CLA system off campus on a Sunday, then you should be able to access it off campus during the closure.
As the University will be officially closed, CLA-OIT support staff will not be working. Support for individual connection problems or other troubleshooting will be addressed when the University reopens on January 3, 2011. However, we will respond to emergency situations that affect access to systems.
If you do experience a significant problem, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 612-624-4357 and leave a message; we will monitor email/voicemail and triage the requests for emergency issues.
If you do require or desire access to University or CLA network resources during the closure (or at any time), please make sure you are able to connect off campus well before December 23rd so we can guide you through the process while we are still here before the closure. For starters, please refer to connect.cla.umn.edu and contact the Service Desk (624-4357) for additional guidance.
