To better serve our customers, IT has established designated maintenance windows. These windows represent defined periods of time during which planned maintenance, upgrades and changes to university IT services and systems may occur. During these maintenance windows, services may be intermittent or unavailable. The windows occur at times when customer usage is low, making it easier to prepare for possible disruptions or changes.
Overall, regular maintenance reduces the number of emergency outages and improves the performance of the IT services and systems you rely on at USI. The time windows listed below are for information purposes only and not intended to be inclusive of all maintenance is conducted by IT on the systems we administer.
IT makes every effort to keep service interference to a minimum.

Emergency Changes, by their nature, are approved to be made as soon as the need is identified, and the CIO or designee are notified and approve.
