Help Desk After Hours Emergency Line

During the hours the Help Desk is not open, users can get assistance for critical, timely situations via the after hours technology emergency line. This service is designed and meant for wide-scale outages or for work that is critical to the University and requires timely assistance. Though all of our client’s issues are important to us, and we do our best to resolve them as quickly and efficiently as possible, only technology emergencies as defined can be addressed by the the Help Desk After Hours Emergency Line. For more information, please click here.

Routine Maintenance

Information Technology strives to make all Butler systems available with as limited interruption to service as possible; however, ongoing enhancements and improvements are employed to continuously enrich the Butler technology experience. These are completed through scheduled maintenance as necessary.

Routine maintenance is limited to Sundays between 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. Any intermittent access, unavailability, or isolated issues experienced with Butler systems during this timeframe do not need to be reported. Notice of any other emergency maintenance or system outages is provided via the IT website and other communication channels as needed.

If you have questions or concerns, or if you experience issues with Butler systems outside of the scheduled window, please contact the IT Help Desk.
