Impact on Friday, June 15th
- Periodic access interruptions for the Internet, CUNYfirst, Badger, and Blackboard will occur for the duration of the maintenance.

Additionally, please keep in mind that this activity can also unintentionally cripple some other services and/or applications and we will coordinate with CUNY CIS if additional troubleshooting is needed post maintenance.
IT is working with Konica Minolta (KM) to bring improved printing services to The Graduate Center this summer. Your existing KM multi-function printer will be replaced with a newly updated printer. We are providing training on how to use the new printers even though the machines are similar to what you already have and use. In addition, we are anticipating that there will not be any disruption in service while this transition takes place; a lot of time and effort is being invested in making sure everything is tested prior to the actual deployment. Last, we are confident that this change will better accommodate your needs and we will provide more information as we get closer to deploying the printers.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Note: If you are GC Staff, GC Faculty or Research Foundation funded Staff, this notice applies to you.
Attention GC Faculty & Staff - please take note of this important announcement regarding your GC network file storage.
As we have noted in our announcements, legacy IT file storage systems, which have become old, slow, insufficient and highly constrained must be decommissioned. The legacy provisioning of “mywork (U:\)” network storage is being retired July 1, in favor of our recent web-based storage implementation, the “GC Drive” resource (powered by OneDrive for Business).
“GC Drive” has the advantage of being web-based, allowing users to organize their files using metadata and folders; remotely access them from anywhere and at any time; and enable collaboration.
Before you start the migration:
-Do some data cleanup and delete unwanted files
-Ensure your filenames do not exceed 40 characters
-Ensure your filenames do not contain special characters such as ‘#’ and ‘%’
-Ensure that any U:\ drive files you wish to retain have been relocated to your GC Drive prior to June 30, 2018
Remember, effective July 1, 2018, your U:\ drive will no longer be accessible.
We appreciate your cooperation as we migrate from outdated infrastructure to more modern technologies.
For instructions on how to move your files to the GC Drive, please see the IT FAQ on U-drive to GC Drive migration that is now available. If you need assistance, please contact IT Services.

The new form is now available on the IT Self-Service Resources page and will provide a greater level of accuracy, streamlining the process of who is authorized to make these types of security requests as part of the onboarding process. It will also ensure that only one source of personal information exists for any request for GC email and network IDs.
This new form must be submitted by the employee’s supervisor or the administrator for the department. Please visit the IT Self-Service Resources site and login to access this new form.
If you have questions, please contact IT Services for support.
