Intermittent Network Outages Tonight Between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. (April 6-7)

April 6, 2018

Drake has been made aware of a critical vulnerability that needs to be patched immediately to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to campus systems and information. ITS will be applying this patch between 10 p.m. tonight and 6 a.m. tomorrow morning. As a result, network access, including access to the internet, may be intermittent or unavailable during this time. Off-campus access to resources and access to the website will not be affected.

We appreciate your patience while we perform this necessary work. If you continue to have any issues after the maintenance window, please contact the Support Center at 515-271-3001 or visit to report your issue.
