Upcoming summer shutdowns: Access to college services from off campus

During the upcoming summer shutdowns you will still have access to many Williams services from off campus. Email, Calendar and Drive are simple. Access to other systems like Peoplesoft and Glow will work in the same way you have accessed previously. We recommend you test these from home this week to avoid surprises.

Some faculty and staff with special access privileges to PeopleSoft need to use the college VPN to connect, but this is not different than how they have connected previously.

Windows File Services (F and G drives or Files2 or Files3) also require a VPN connection. The VPN client is installed on all college laptops and can be downloaded for home computers.

Although we will have limited support available during the shutdowns you can email desktop@williams.edu for assistance. You can also leave a message on the support line phone (413-597-090) and OIT staff will respond quickly.
