GOLF CART SAFETY AND GUIDELINES
An increased number of utility and golf carts are sharing campus walkways with pedestrians, bicycles, skateboards and vehicles (see Policy 3-233: Operation of Motorized Vehicles on Pedestrian Walks). To promote the safe operation of the carts, U Risk & Insurance Management developed guidelines addressing operator qualifications, cart identification, speed limit and departmental responsibility.
Please review the Cart Use Guidelines here or contact U Risk & Insurance Management at 801-581-5590 for additional information.
NETWORK UPGRADE FOR CAMPUS BUILDINGS
This summer, UIT will upgrade the network in several campus buildings on a series of days. The actual network downtime will be 45-60 minutes per building and will affect any device using a wired or wireless network connection routed through the building.
A schedule of the planned down times is available on the UIT web site. This schedule is subject to change, so please check the webpage regularly for the latest updates.
The upgrades will connect buildings to the new network backbone, resulting in increased bandwidth and improved network performance and stability for students, faculty and staff.
If you have questions during the upgrades or encounter issues after the upgrades, please contact the UIT Help Desk at 801-581-4000 option 1 and UIT will investigate immediately.

WAIT! OUR TEXTBOOK FLOOR HAS CHANGED
Summer semester is here. Whether you are a student or a faculty member at the U, the last thing you want to be doing during the first week of a new semester is spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME looking for your course materials.
In an effort to make finding textbooks easier for everyone on campus, the University Campus Store has rearranged its textbook floor. You will now find all textbooks in alphabetical order (from A to Z) by the author’s last name. With the new layout you will find all the books by a certain author in the same place, no matter which class it is being used in. This way, the Campus Store will be more likely to get you the right book at the right time.
With the new layout, it is very important that students bring their book list with them to the store when they are ready to buy textbooks. You can find your book list by going to CIS, clicking on “View your Class Schedule,” and then clicking the banner at the bottom of the page or you can visit the Campus Store’s course materials page.
Have a great semester.
