The UCF network connection to the Internet is experiencing exceptionally high traffic load. This condition, which began late Sunday afternoon, can result in an on-campus network user being unable to reach an external site (e.g., Canvas). In most cases, if the network user attempts to connect to the off-campus site a second or third time it should work but may appear to be slower than normal.
CS&T network engineers are actively working with departmental IT managers to help reduce some of the high network traffic that has created this condition. Specific questions can be directed to the Service Desk at http://servicedesk.ucf.edu or 407-823-5117.
