We will continue to update you as we get more information. Please contact the Help Desk with any questions: help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.

Telephone Service Provider Change: Intermittent Disruptions to Off-Campus Calling

We have learned from our vendor that the necessary change to our service provider could include some disruptions to calls being made to and from off-campus phone numbers. Calls made between on-campus phone numbers will not be affected.

As such, we will begin our work at 7:30am on Thursday, 9/1 in the hope of limiting disruptions as much as possible. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

If you find that you are unable to make a call to an off-campus phone number, you could try connecting with the person via Microsoft Teams or Zoom. If you need help setting up a meeting, please get in touch with the Help Desk: help@brynmawr.edu or 610.526.7440.

 

Warning: New Phishing Message

Another new phishing message is making the rounds this week. Be on the lookout for messages that have the subject “Bryn Mawr College Newsletter !!!” and that ask community members to view an attachment regarding a new schedule. This message and others like it are a scam.

Do not click links, download any attachments, or respond in any way. Delete the message or report it as Phishing in Outlook. If you believe you’ve given your information to a phisher, immediately change your password and contact the Help Desk.

Email scams come in many forms. While we work to keep you informed, attacks are increasingly diverse and sophisticated. It’s not possible for us to warn you of every message before you see it. Be cautious and suspicious. If you ever have a question or suspicion, don’t hesitate to contact the Help Desk.

Contact the Help Desk with questions: help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.
