IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Throughout the fall 2015 semester, Information Technology Services (ITS) will replace components of the Rowdy server with customizable, agile and up-to-date technologies in order to provide the highest level of service, performance and security to faculty and staff who use the instructional computing environment. To make this project as seamless as possible, ITS would like to determine an appropriate replacement strategy for your specific needs. If you currently use Rowdy for any reason, please complete the Rowdy Account Options form, so that ITS can better meet your ongoing instructional computing needs.

Please be aware that all content stored or hosted on the Rowdy server will be archived and no longer available online after December 21, 2015, so your prompt attention is requested. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 303-352-7548 or www.msudenver.edu/gethelp.
