Posted by on Sunday, November 10, 2019 in Outage.

Vanderbilt’s vummiv WiFi network will be retired on Tuesday, December 3, at 6 a.m. After that time, any device connected to vummiv will no longer have network access unless switched over to one of the other campus WiFi networks.

In preparation for the retirement, vummiv will be unavailable from 6 a.m. on Wednesday, November 13, to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 16, and again from 6 a.m. on Tuesday, November 19, to 4 p.m. on Monday, November 25.

Devices such as computers and phones may automatically look for other network connections. Wireless devices such as cameras, research or monitoring equipment, A/V conferencing systems, etc., that are currently connected to vummiv may need to be reconfigured to connect to one of the other VU WiFi networks.

Please contact the VUIT Help Desk at (615) 343-9999 (3-9999 on campus) or your local support provider if you need assistance reconnecting wireless devices prior to, during or after the outage window.
