Network upgrades will likely cause some short-term outages for the UW-Madison Moodle Service.

This event has been cancelled.  However, there may still be short interruptions of service from some buildings on the Engineering campus (see list below).


These upgrades will be taking place on Saturday August 2 from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm.  This work is most likely to affect the UW-Moodle service early in the morning between 7:00 am and 7:30 am.  If things go as expected, the rest of the work between 7:30 am and 3:00 pm will not affect the service as a whole. However, access may be blocked from some buildings on the Engineering campus at different times during the day.  We recommend avoiding this date when setting critical deadlines, just in case things do not go "as expected".  Affected buildings are:

Engineering Hall (enghall)
Mechanical Engineering (mecheng)
Engineering Research Building (erb)
Engineering Centers Building (ecb)
Computer Aided Engineering (1410jd)
Wendt Library (wendt)
Material Science (mtrlsci)
