Research Computing Holiday Break

Research Computing personnel will observe the university winter break from 8:00am EST on Friday, December 22nd, 2023 , and will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024. During this time, Research Computing services will continue to be available, but all staff will be on leave.

Critical system outages will be dealt with should they occur during this time. Other support needs will be handled when the University re-opens on January 3rd.

There will also be no coffee hour consultations during this break.

Scratch file purging (on community clusters with scratch space) will continue as normal during the break, so be sure to archive your files in scratch storage or check for any upcoming purge warning emails during the break. This does not apply to Data Depot or home directories -- only scratch storage.

Have a wonderful break, everyone, and we look forward to great things in the new year!
