On March 5, an unauthorized and potentially malicious intrusion was identified in UTEP’s digital network, resulting in the university turning off all campus systems and campus-wide network issues.
UTEP released a statement on March 7 saying staff was working to bring back online services such as Blackboard so students and faculty would be available; however, students still reported issues throughout the week.
