Puget Sound Network: Planned Maintenance

Thursday, June 15 @ 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. [COMPLETE]


  • 6/15/2023 at 9:30 p.m. – The scheduled network maintenance is now complete. Please report any issues to the Technology Service Desk.


Technology Services (TS) will be performing critical maintenance to our campus firewalls in order to improve the security of our network. A firewall is a network security device that controls network access and traffic flows. For continued network functionality, it is important to perform maintenance on this key infrastructure component and move its operation to supported hardware and software.


  • External access to systems hosted on campus, such as myPugetSound and network shares, will be unavailable. 

  • All other systems requiring network connectivity on the Puget Sound campus such as physical phones and printers will be unavailable.

  • GlobalProtect VPN will be unavailable. 

  • Inbound and outbound internet access (WiFi and Ethernet) will be unavailable during the maintenance window. 



  • Access to Canvas, email, Google Workspace, the university website (pugetsound.edu), and Zoom phone app will not be affected.

Thank you for your patience as we conduct this important work. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the TS Service Desk.
