Maintenance to take UWinsite Student offline Saturday

UWinsite Student will be unavailable from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.

The 12-hour shutdown is necessary for the scheduled maintenance of UWindsor’s student information platform, including legislated updates to the T2202 (Tuition and Enrolment Certificate) tax form.

“This maintenance period has been planned during a low Uwinsite Student usage period aligned with the start of Reading Week,” says Susan Holiga, assistant director, Information Technology Services. “We are striving to minimize any disruption to operations as much as possible.”

On Saturday, any updates about the maintenance period will be posted on the IT Services’ system status webpage at www.uwindsor.ca/itservices/status.
