Upcoming network maintenance: October 16

October 6, 2021

On Saturday, October 16, HUIT will be performing network maintenance that will affect internet access in several buildings on campus, including College residential buildings. 

From Saturday, October 16 at 10:30 PM to Sunday, October 17 at 7:00 AM, the Harvard network will be unavailable in the buildings listed below. This means residents of these buildings won’t be able to connect to the internet using either the wired or wireless network during this time.
