Parts of the Iowa State website that have been inaccessible since Feb. 18 night will most likely remain inaccessible throughout Feb. 20. 

The website is experiencing a “significant outage affecting a large number of its public web sites,” according to a University Information Technology Services Facebook post.

While there is no estimate as to exactly when the full website will be accessible, the university expects at least through Feb. 20.

The pages are unavailable to anyone internal or external to the university, the post stated.

“The IT folks are all over it,” Annette Hacker, director of Iowa State University News Service, said in an email. “[We’re] not sure what the problem is, as some portions of the website work, but others don’t. Pages are on different servers.”

Update – 5:29 p.m., Feb. 20

As of 4 p.m. Friday, ISU IT Services said website access has been fully restored and released a statement.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will continue to closely monitor and communicate any issues as quickly as possible. Should you continue to experience trouble with any sites, please contact the ITS Solution Center at (515) 294-4000 or [email protected].”
