Computing Services Maintenance for today, Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Beginning at 9:00 PM, we will be applying critical security patches and upgrades to several back-end systems. These patches will require brief outages as the systems reboot, but impact to campus services should be less than 30 minutes. This includes printing in the computer labs, and also wireless services in the Student Union Building.

On Saturday beginning at 3:00 AM, the DEVL Banner system will be down for several hours for a series of upgrades. No production Banner downtime is expected.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at

Have a great day!
