Computer Preventative Maintenance


Computer maintenance will take place in all studios, editing suites and workstations according to our preventative maintenance schedule. Access during computer maintenance to any studio, editing suites or workstations will be declined during maintenance times.

Students have five business days after finals to remove their projects from all editing facilities and computer hard drives or make duplications.

Preventative maintenance schedule:
*The last two weeks in May and the first week in June
*The first two weeks in August
*The last week in December and the first two weeks in January

Maintenance will be performed in the following areas:

SV108 Audio Studio D  
SV110 Midi Studios
SV131/133 Video Studio
SV132 Journalism Editing  
SV134C Radio Station
SV134E Audio Studio E
SV135 Photo Studio
SV136 Gorlok Television (GTV)
SV137/139 Audio Studio A
SV141 Audio Studio B
SV143 Digtal Darkroom 
SV254B Audio 254B                        
SV256 Video Editing                       
SV262 Avid Editing                        

During computer maintenance times workstations may require reformatting and de-fragmenting of the hard drive this will cause data to be lost. Students need to save their projects to their external firewire drives; any projects stored on the internal drives will be lost at maintenance times.

All requests for extended storage must be communicated from the faculty member/mentor to Media Services before the end of the semester.
