Campus Computing Services Restored After Power Outage

January 20, 2018

All SPU computer systems are back online after last night’s power outage.

What Happened?

Portions of campus lost power around 10pm last night. The backup generator, which supplies power to CIS during power outages, failed to start and the SPU data center “hard crashed”.  CIS staff worked through the night and into Saturday to get systems back online, replacing equipment damaged by the power blips.

Still Having Problems?

If you are still encountering issues with campus computing or technology, please contact the CIS Helpdesk, which is open until 1pm today.  For the remainder of the weekend, please report any system outages to the Office of Safety and Security (206-281-2922).
