Network Interruptions Thursdays May 13 - June 25

Posted May 12, 2021

There will be targeted network interruptions on Thursdays over the next five weeks with printing interruptions from June 14 - 25.

The WTS Network Infrastructure Team is updating some network equipment and configuration over the next several weeks in Social Science that will result in network interruptions and changes to IP addresses for many computers in two of our buildings: Social Science Centre and Lawson Hall.  

SSTS is working very closely with the WTS-NI Team to coordinate this work and we will provide as much notice as possible to each department as the work progresses.  Once your department is identified for this work, we will email your Administrative Officer and ask them to notify their members with specific details about the Network Interruption. The actual work will cause network interruptions for at least four hours. When we have completed the work in your area, we will notify your Administrative Officer.

All users will have access to shared network drives (W: and P:) and personal H: drives by using the instructions for Windows users at, or for Mac users at If you are working on campus, you will find that the Western Wi-Fi will still be available. Users will not have network access to their office computers either remotely or directly and Network printing will not be available.

You will receive notification from your Administrative Officer when we are doing the work in your area. You can expect an interruption in network access for your computers on one of the following days:
