UPDATE: This maintenance has been completed successfully.


On Friday August 16th starting at 10:30am, CUIT will be performing routine maintenance on the Network Switches serving Dodge Hall. This maintenance will be to enable new security features that require all connected hosts to use DHCP for assignment of IP addresses.  This scheduled update is expected to be completed on time.  No overall service interruption is anticipated, but clients that lose network connectivity should check the network settings of their device and confirm it is set to DHCP. 

For questions about this event or to inquire about static IP reservations, please contact the CUIT Helpdesk at, or call 212-854-1919.
