The modem pool has been restored and is working normal. Some phone services are still being affected due to a construction mishap that severed 1200-pair and 600-pair phone cables on Johnson and Charter Streets Monday afternoon. This had cut service to the UW dial pool, and phone service for the following buildings:

  • Engineering Research
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Engineering Centers
  • Athletics (all buildings)
  • Emergency phone in Lot 17

SBC is repairing the cables and will restore all services as soon as possible.

The Help Desk phone system is unaffected, if you need assistance please call us at 264-HELP. We appoligize for any inconvenience.
