Printing & Email/Network Accounts for December 2008 Graduates

December 2008 graduates may now print to Chicago-Kent’s network printers only via their student ID card’s “cash account.”  ID card “printing accounts,” and any remaining complementary pages within them, have been eliminated for December 2008 graduates.

Email and network login accounts for December 2008 graduates will continue to remain active through the Spring 2009 semester.  Accounts for both December 2008 graduates and May 2008 graduates will be terminated shortly after the July, 2009 Bar Exam.

Detailed information on account termination dates and alumni-specific email services will be posted to this CLC Record page and emailed at the end of May, 2009.

CLC Monthly Network Maintenance Schedule

The Center for Law and Computers will conduct regular monthly maintenance windows on the first Tuesday of every month (5a.m. - 7a.m. in the morning) for "Patch and\or Update" management on systems that need to be rebooted.

Remember too that there may be "emergency" times when manufacturers release "critical" update patches that need to be installed immediately. The CLC will make every attempt to send out an announcement in advance when the "critical" updates need to be installed and systems rebooted (however, we cannot always guarantee advance notice since certain patches/updates need to be applied ASAP before a breach is made).

All network services including Internet access, email, web mail, network drives, and network printing will be down during the above scheduled time.

Maintenance will be conducted on the following days:

Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2009
Tuesday, Mar. 10, 2009
Tuesday, Apr. 14, 2009

Chicago-Kent's Internet Service Provider (Illinois Century Network) backbone maintenance window is on Fridays from 2:00am - 7:00am. During this maintenance window it is possible that the Downtown Campus building may experience intermittent Internet connectivity.
