All School of Nursing domain machines will reboot after receiving critical security patches at 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.  As part of our normal monthly Patch Tuesday updates, we are upgrading Microsoft Office to the latest version of Office365.  This change will require you to authenticate with your PennO365 account on your first login.

If you need to reset your PennO365 password, please use the following link:

https://office365.password.isc.upenn.edu/ - You will need your PennKey credentials

Additionally, if you experience any problems with accessing your email, please use webmail until we can resolve your issue:

Microsoft releases critical security patches for servers and desktop/laptop computers.

In addition to the monthly Microsoft Patch Tuesday Updates, ITS will also apply weekly third-party software patches overnight, every Wednesday morning from 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. If you need access to network drives during that time, the virtual environment can be found here:
