KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's computer network will be down from 6 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 29, until 7 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 30, for major system improvements. All WMU Web pages and e-mail will be unavailable during the outage, and there will be no campus access to the Internet or to local file services that utilize the network.

The downtime is scheduled during the university's holiday recess, when there are no classes and all WMU offices are closed, except for essential services. The system improvements are designed to upgrade and make the university network more robust.
