VPN Outage TONIGHT (4/8) from 10pm – midnight

In order to address an underlying server issue, LITS will be doing emergency maintenance on our VPN this evening (April 8th) from 10pm – midnight. During this time, community members will be unable to access their home directories and network file shares from off-campus. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

Once the maintenance is complete, community members will be prompted to upgrade their clients before using the Pulse Secure client. For assistance with this, or if you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact the Help Desk at 610-526-7440 or help@brynmawr.edu.

Thank you in advance for your patience while we perform this important upgrade.

Emergency Maintenance on Moodle – Tuesday, Mar 22

LITS will be performing emergency maintenance on Moodle at 8 PM on Tuesday, March 22, 2022. The upgrade will address security vulnerabilities. The upgrade should last less than 10 minutes, and people who are already logged in should experience minimal disruption during that time.

Please contact the Help Desk with any questions or concerns: help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.

RESOLVED: Intermittent Issues with On-Campus Phone Calls

Update, 3/1: Our vendor reports that all issues should now be resolved and that phone connections should be back to normal. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Help Desk with any further issues or questions.


Some community members have reported having trouble while making and receiving calls to their College phones. While all calls appear to be going through, some people report experiencing clicking noises or choppy or garbled phone connections. LITS is actively working with our telephone vendors on the issue, but there is currently no ETA for a fix. Thank you for your patience while we work through this issue.

Please reach out to the Help Desk with any questions: help@brynmawr.edu, 610-526-7440.

Reminder: Routine System Maintenance Thursday 6pm – midnight

Routine system maintenance will occur tomorrow (Thursday) from 6:00 p.m. until midnight.

Some community members’ Microsoft 365 accounts now default to “add online meeting to all meetings”. During this week’s maintenance, we will be turning this setting OFF for all accounts. If you would like to turn it back on for your own account, you can do so by going to:

  • Calendar > Events and invitations > Add online meeting to all meetings
