The University will be implementing a campus wide power outage on Saturday, October 30, Sunday, October 31 and Saturday, November 13, 2021. We inform you about computer and network system operations in this period as follows.

■ Tsukuba Campus Network System
While the main network system will continue to work through this period, the floor switches will turn off and it will be impossible to gain access via the campus common areas or classrooms (On-Campus Wi-Fi System will be inoperable due to the power cut off) as follows.

Emails coming from outside the university system will be delivered as soon as the department server is back online provided the server is set to receive emails through the mail gateway. Otherwise, the e-mails may be returned to the sender depending on the configuration of servers along the delivery path.
