4-26-2017: The Rice-IBC building telephone system (on Kirby Drive) is experiencing failures on the telephone system hard drive. Rice-IBC users have not been impacted yet.

The defective hard drive will be replaced this evening, starting at 5:30pm. Work should be completed by 9:30pm.

The Rice users at the Kirby location will not be able to use the Rice-IBC telephone system while this repair is being made.

The main campus system users will not be affected during the repair (other than not being able to reach Rice-IBC users).

Thank you.

Update: 9:15 pm- Hard drive replaced, system tests were successful.
