Telephone System Upgrade

At 6:00 AM on Thursday October 19th, AT&T will be performing the second part of an upgrade to the circuits that connect our telephone system with the outside world. This upgrade is moving campus to a more advanced and cost effective technology then what we have today.

We do not expect any service interruptions while AT&T performs the upgrade and their work should conclude by 7:00 AM. Our technicians will be on site to monitor the progress and test the service upon completion. If you experience any issues with your telephone service after the upgrade is complete, please contact ITSS at 898-HELP for support. This upgrade is the final part of the two part process that began in August.
