Dec 3-4: Physics Building Intermittent Phone Outages

There will be rolling phone service outages in the UWM Physics building Mon., Dec. 3 beginning at 4:30 p.m. and concluding at 7 a.m. the following day. If further work is necessary, intermittent outages will resume Tues., Dec. 4 at 4:30 p.m. and conclude 7 a.m. on Wed., Dec 5.

These outages are necessary as construction of the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Center (IRC) requires phone lines to the Physics building be moved. All 130 phone lines in Physics will be effected at some point during this timeframe.

Interruptions in service should last no longer than 10 minutes at a time. While work is being done to a particular line, no outbound or inbound phone calls can be made. During the outage, local answering machines will not be able to record messages. Telephones with State-owned voicemail will be able to record messages during service interruptions.

If you experience interruptions in service longer than 10 minutes or have service issues following the scheduled timeframe outlined above, contact the UWM Network Operations Center (NOC) at (414)229-5800 or via email at
