No internet access in the EMU for six hours on May 12

The Erb Memorial Union will be undergoing a network shutdown in order to replace some old equipment Thursday morning, from 6 a.m. to noon. The outage was announced by EMU Maintenance employee Jake Vasey.

So if you’re studying or working in the EMU, you won’t be able to access the internet via wi-fi or an ethernet connection during that six-hour block. Campus cash will also be down during the network shutdown. Tamarra White, manager of the Card Office and Guest Services at the EMU, posted on its website this afternoon that the UO Card Office will be closed during the shutdown hours, and plans to reopen at noon barring any further delays.

All other EMU services should remain open, but may take on fewer operations due to the lack of internet.

“This is just something that construction needs to do in order to switch over to new telecommunications equipment,” said EMU Director Laurie Woodward.
