Holiday Break

The Holidays are upon us! As we wind down the year, the university will be closed next  week with only skeleton crews working when and where needed.

Of course IT needs to keep running, so some of our OIT staff will be either working or on call. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of all OIT employees, including those working over the breaks.

Unless you've been told otherwise by your system administrators or TSCs, please remember to turn off your computers and printers over the break.  Not only will this save money and electricity, but it helps prevent attacks against your systems over the break.  Also take a look around at other electricity-consuming devices in your office you can turn off and unplug over the break (coffee makers, microwave ovens, radios, charging units, etc).*

Have a happy holiday season and we'll see you in the new year!

*To learn more about just how much energy can be saved by turning off all your devices, check the Longhorn Lights Out page at
