Portal, Teamwork and other systems will be unavailable 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Sept. 4 & 11

Portal.wvu.edu, Teamwork.wvu.edu and several other systems will be unavailable 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4 and Sunday, Sept. 11 while Information Technology Services moves data to a new storage system. This critical upgrade replaces two existing systems with one and increases storage capacity by 65 percent. This change is expected to save the University more than $500,000 a year.

On Sunday Sept. 4, the affected services include:

  • Portal.wvu.edu
  • Office 365 authentication
  • Teamwork

On Sunday Sept. 11, the affected services include:

  • Department and home file shares (for many users, this will be J and N network drives)

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience with these planned outages. ITS understands there is never a good time to take systems offline, but maintenance and improvements are critical. Please direct questions to the ITS Service Desk at (304) 293-4444.
