Dec 13 - CTAAR web site problems

We are experiencing some techincal problems with our web site. It may be intermittently unavailable. Thank you for your patience  while we work on correcting the issues.

[The problem has been resolved, but we're monitoring the issue in case of a recurrence.] 

Please write to us at please replace "brokenmail" with if you need to contact CTAAR staff. 

Update: phone service has been restored as of November 21st, at 10:30 a.m.

Sakai is unavailable Wednesday, August 23rd, for system updates and maintenance. OIT plans to have it back online by the end of the day. 

A damaged electrical transformer will be repaired on Friday, March 17. This will cause a power outage to part of the College Avenue Campus, including the Rutgers Student Center, College Avenue Gym and surrounding buildings. It will also affect networking and  telephone services to several buildings.

The CTAAR office will remain closed until power is restored, and the CTAAR  web site will be unavailable.

Electrical service will be restored sometime after 5:00 pm, but it may take several more hours to restart servers and re-establish network services. We hope to have our web site back online by Saturday morning at the latest, and the office will reopen on Monday.
