UPDATE: Campus Internet Restored

Due to an accident in the area yesterday, the University lost network connectivity from MERIT, our Internet Service Provider. At approximately 10:20 P.M last night, our internet connection was restored to campus, and within 2 hours of that time all services had returned to normal functionality.

If you were on campus during this downtime, you could reach university services (Email, Blackboard, H and I Drive, etc.) but you could not reach outside resources (Google, Hotmail, etc.). If you were off campus however it was just the opposite and you were unable to reach any University resources.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your understanding while our Internet Service Provider worked hard to return service to the campus community.

If you are still experiencing any problems or have further questions, please contact us at 810-762-3123 (option 1) or by emailing and we will do our best to assist you with any specific problems you may be encountering.

ITS needs to perform emergency maintenance on the university department drives this weekend.  This maintenance requires that departmental drives be unavailable beginning at 6:00pm today, 3/20/2015.  We do not have an exact time that the maintenance will finish but are hoping that it will be done sometime Saturday morning.

Drives affected include:

If you will need access to any files from the drives listed above please copy the files to an external drive prior to 6pm this afternoon.

March 10th, 2015 ITS Computer Lab Problem

Update: The ITS Computer labs are now functioning normally. If you experience any further issues of this nature please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 810-762-3123 option 1. Thank you all for your patience in this matter.


Campus Community,


If you are utilizing one of the ITS computer labs tonight please save often.


ITS is currently experiencing a problem with the computers in most of the open labs.  The 206 MSB lab is unaffected.  When using computers in the other labs students should save often as the desktops will occasionally restart unexpectedly.  ITS technicians are working to resolve the problem and all computers should be back to normal tomorrow, Tuesday March 11th.



The Riverfront 2nd floor computer lab will be unavailable tonight from 12 (midnight) till 1am while we resolve this problem.


We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
