home Resources and Services Possible Technology Interruptions During Eclipse

Possible Technology Interruptions During Eclipse

As Mizzou prepares to celebrate the solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, students, faculty and staff should anticipate possible interruptions in some technology services. While we do not expect operations to be impacted severely, we should be prepared for some challenges due to the combined effects of the first day of classes plus visitors, both on-campus and in the surrounding community.

During times of peak demand, students, faculty, staff, and visitors may experience:

  • Overloaded cellular service, which could cause calls to fail and/or text messaging delays, along with the loss of data services;
  • Problems accessing TigerWifi and TigerWifi-Guest due to excessive load; less impact would be seen on wired connections;
  • Possible problems logging into University resources;
  • Slower commercial internet connectivity in the Columbia area. Users could experience delays or difficulty reaching websites or other resources;

Remote workers and learners also may be affected by strain on commercial internet providers and campus resources such as VPN services.

We appreciate your patience as we anticipate this once-in-a-lifetime event. If you have any questions, please contact our help desk at (573) 882-5000.
