Outages & Maintenance

We will be doing network maintenance on Saturday (8/7) from 6:00am-noon. There will be temporary disruptions and potential outages during this time in the following buildings: Swartz Chi Pi Observatory Academic West Academic East Holmes Management McDonnel Tau Kappa Epsilon Environmental Center Sigma Phi Epsilon Sigma Chi Please contact the Tech Desk - techdesk@bucknell.edu or 570-577-77777 with any concerns or questions.
The campus wireless network will be intermittently available from 5:00am until 8:00am on Sunday (8/8) while we update our access points. Interruptions will be short in duration. If you have any questions, please contact the Tech Desk at techdesk@bucknell.edu or (570) 577-7777.
The time clocks through which some hourly staff enter their time to Workday are in need of unplanned software updates that can only be applied at the manufacturer. We are developing a plan that will rotate through all of them over the summer meaning several will be offline at any given time while offsite being updated. Other clocks will remain in service and direct time entry into Workday remains available.
