Communications networks experience outage for several days at Southeastern Louisiana University
HAMMOND, La. (WVUE) - Due to unknown circumstances, communication networks at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond have experienced outages for several days.
Faculty members say it started on Friday with the school’s official website going down and the outages were spread to the school’s phones, email, and Moodle online classroom resources.
The school released an official statement on Sunday night on social media saying that operations will continue even though some systems may not be returned to service.
School officials say there was a “potential incident within its network, requiring the university to intentionally take the network offline as a preventative measure.”
Louisiana State Police is investigating the matter.
An outage was also reported at Dillard University and LSU, though it is unclear if the three incidents are related.
Power was out completely on portions of Dillard University’s campus, prompting school officials to put some students in hotel rooms and provide a shuttle to school.
A contractor working on Dillard’s campus says multiple fuses malfunctioned and power will not be restored until Wednesday at the earliest.
