Uniprint Upgrade - Xerox and Student Printing Unavailable

Information Technology will be performing necessary upgrades to Pharos Uniprint systems on April 19th, 2024 (7AM to 7PM).

Due to the nature of the upgrades, printing through Pharos will be down for the entirety of the upgrade.  This will effect printing to Xerox's using the XeroxUniprint queue, as well as all printing in the computer labs, including the BW and COLOR queues.  Non-Xerox departmental printers will be unaffected.

Please plan on printing anything important before Thursday, April 18th.  If your department needs something printed during downtime, please contact the helpdesk for a workaround solution via the Helpdesk ticketing system or by calling 973.720.4357.

Temporary issue with WP websites - Resolved

At approximately 11:55am on Thursday 3/14, multiple WPUNJ websites including the WP homepage, WPconnect, Banner, and others started to display a message about an 'insecure connection'. This message was due to an issue with a component in the university's network that handles web traffic. The device had reverted to a prior configuration with an older SSL certificate, which resulted in the warnings appearing when visiting the websites.

The issue was resolved within 15 minutes of being reported. While the 'insecure connection' warning is ominous, there was no immediate security risk.

Thank you.
