UIT information resources for the U community

UIT offers myriad resources to help members of the University of Utah and University of Utah Health community stay up to speed on IT news, unplanned outages, scheduled maintenance, and more. To help provide U community members more control over the information sent to their inboxes, UIT on Thursday, September 30, 2021, will begin to offer information email service subscribers the opportunity to set preferences for the types of messages they’d like to receive. Please refer to the UIT information email service section below for more information.

Have a question, or suggestion, about how UIT can improve its communication and information services? Please contact UIT's Strategic Communication group at

Please note that only NotifyIT and the U’s application health summary website provide urgent UIT information (unplanned outages and updates).
