  • no access to any CTOOLS site that they joined using their temporary uniqname


  • Back up any work saved to the lab computers! The lab computer hard drives will be wiped as part of the shutdown process. Anything stored on those hard drives will be permanently deleted. Recovery of user files will be impossible.
  • Download workshop/course files from the Summer Program file share (i.e., the [z] drive) before you leave Ann Arbor. The files will not be accessible remotely.
  • If you used the M+Google account (Gmail, Docs, etc.) associated with your temporary uniqname export your mail and files if you want to retain them.
  • If you used your temporary U-M uniqname to access CTOOLS that access will end August 16th. Make sure that you download any materials that you want available after that date.

If you have any questions about the shutdown of computing services, please visit Newberry Room 103 or email
