UNC Voice Services Intermittent 5 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 16, PD Has Alternate Phone Number

Information Management & Technology will perform a major upgrade to the university's voice communications system from 5 a.m.-noon Saturday, Dec. 16, during which all voice communications, including phone service, will be intermittent on the Greeley campus and the Lowry and Centerra centers.

If you need to reach the UNC Police Department during one of the intermittent outages, call the department's alternate number, 970-353-2650, which is not part of UNC's phone system. If you have an emergency during one of the outages, use a cell phone to call 911 and your call will be directed to Weld County's emergency dispatch center, which will notify campus police. Also, be aware that the blue emergency poles on campus will not be operable during the maintenance.

During the maintenance, calls to UNC's main switchboard line (351-1890) will receive either a recording or a busy signal, depending on the status of the system at the time of the call.

If you have any questions or concerns prior to the maintenance, contact the Technical Support Center at 970-351-4357. The TSC will also experience intermittent phone service outages during the maintenance.

Winter Break Energy Conservation Tips

Winter break is a great time to save energy resources if you're going to be away, whether you live on or off campus. Before you leave for the break, look around and turn off any and all equipment that won't be in use while you're gone. Remember to:

  • Power your computer down (it's OK to turn it off every night unless a research project specifies otherwise)
  • If you use a separate computer monitor, use the power button to turn it all the way off
  • Turn off your personal desktop printer
  • Turn off any other little device: radio, calculator, speakers, etc.
  • Unplug any space heaters
  • Turn off the lights
  • Be sure all of your windows are closed
  • Turn down your thermostat, if applicable
