Oregon State University Community,

As of 11:45am, We are continuing to work on the disruption to network service for the Corvallis Campus. Some network services have been restored, but many applications are not yet back online. Due to the nature of this outage and the involvement of the utility company, we anticipate that further disruptions are possible today. We will provide another update by 3:00pm with more information.

We will continue to monitor the situation and encourage you to contact the Service Desk if you have any questions or concerns.

At 8:45am, we became aware of a widespread network outage at the Corvallis campus. This outage was caused by a power failure in the Kerr administration building where teams are currently on-site making repairs. We currently do not have an ETA for a return to normal service but will post an update by 12:00pm with more information.

We understand the inconvenience that this outage might be causing you, and encourage you to contact the Service Desk if you have any questions or concerns.
