After unspecified network issues Wednesday afternoon resulted in the Wichita State University website and campus Wi-Fi becoming inaccessible, all services have been restored. The error rendered students, faculty and staff unable to access information and resources about the university. 

The university posted updates regarding the internet and system status Wednesday evening. Screenshot courtesy of Wichita State University.

According to a text alert sent Wednesday afternoon by the university and Lainie Mazzullo-Hart, the university’s director of communications, “WSU is having technical issues and will restore internet service as soon as possible. Additional information will be shared as it’s available.”

Around 9:30 Wednesday evening, the university published an update on its Instagram story and X account that said WSU is still attempting to “restore connectivity,” estimating that all systems should be back online by Thursday morning or early afternoon. The posts encouraged employees to continue working as normal.

Around noon on Thursday, the university announced that the wichita.edu website, Blackboard, myWSU services, WSU email and other systems have been restored and are now operational. For those with persisting connectivity issues, the ITS Help Desk can be reached at 316-978-4357 (HELP).
