Why is this happening?

We need to install critical security updates to our network equipment. This work has been completed successfully in multiple locations across campus during the past three weeks. Unfortunately, not all buildings have full network resilience, which is why some buildings will see a short network outage.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
