  • Memorial Day

Computer Lab & Online Services

Michigan Engineering’s data and network services, such as online file storage, the Michigan Engineering website, and remote access computing are generally available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. Systems and services are occasionally taken offline for scheduled maintenance activities, which are published on CAEN’s service status web pageMany Michigan Engineering information technology services depend on other U-M services and facilities being available, so campus-wide outages may also affect them.

CAEN student computer labs are available for drop-in use when the buildings they are in are open, and may also occasionally be closed for maintenance. Closings are posted in advance outside each lab, so if a location is closed, students should be prepared to seek an alternative computer lab.
