Planned Power Outage

The cogeneration construction project will require the contractor to shut down power to the entire Brighton Campus, including the Alice Holloway Young Commons, on Tuesday, April 13th at 9 PM.  This power outage will be a minimum of one-hour in duration and power should be restored by 10 PM.

Associated Systems and Network Shutdown

In preparation for the college-wide power shutdown, Educational Technology Services will begin the shutdown of computer systems and network devices at 6 PM on Tuesday, April 13th.  They hope to have all systems back online by approximately 6 AM on Wednesday morning April 14th.  Educational Technology Services recommends that you shutdown and power off all computers and printers before 9 PM on Tuesday, April 13.

Administrative computing systems will be shutdown on the following schedule:

FRS, HRS, ADS                   6 PM
SIS, Focus                              7 PM
Banner Systems                  7 PM
Ad Astra/Imaging/TESS                   7:30 PM
Manilla/Web for students & employees   8:30 PM

The MCC web site will be operational, but some web resources will not be available.  These include online registration, Web for Employees, and other database driven functions.

Overnight processing will take place on Tuesday night as usual after the power is restored, but due to the shorter processing window, it is requested that any jobs that can be run earlier (Monday night) or later (Wednesday night) be processed on another night.
