IT Services will be performing maintenance and implementing changes in the computing environment over Spring Break. The week between March 19 - 27 is traditionally a time when demands on systems are lower, reducing the risk that students, faculty, or staff will be inconvenienced by the disruptions or outages that this work may cause.

Here are the hours for the IT Services Support Desk during Spring Break:

Sunday, March 20th: 9 am - 6 pm

Monday, March 21 through Friday, March 25th: 7 am - 6 pm

Returning to regular hours on Saturday March 26th.

Support Desk personel will check the email queue, as well as voicemail messages, for any urgent requests.

Everything from a virtual cadaver in kinesiology to iPads that students can borrow in the libraries. Both of these examples were funded through the Student Technology Fee Competitive Proposal Process.

An email message that mentions “Daily Mail Bounce Count” is the latest phishing scam to affect the Miami community. This message stands out as being a hoax because it references email rules that do not exist in Miami’s environment. Please be aware that this message is a phishing scam, and Miami’s Information Security office has been working to block these sites.

IT Services began working on updating Miami’s Internet module architecture in late December, and is very appreciative of the patience shown by the University community while technicians worked through various issues.
