When are Computers Unavailable Because of Scheduled Maintenance?

The Information Technology department continually performs maintenance, installs updates, and upgrades hardware and software on VIU employee and student computers. This helps keep the VIU computing environment stable, secure, and current.


This means that occasionally some VIU Employee and student computers may be unavailable while we work on them. The scheduled maintenance windows listed below outline the times where IT may be performing scheduled maintenance on computers and computers may be unavailable or may restart. Be sure to save to your U: drive!
