Welcome to Arkansas State University!
+ Campus alert: A-State Closed Jan. 16
+ SHOW

A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

For students living on-campus, Acansa Dining Hall will operate under "brunch hours" with service from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

For updates on A-State events, please check the university’s official website AState.edu or social media feeds, Facebook.com/ArkansasState or @ArkansasState on Twitter.

Previous Maintenance or Outages

TouchNet will be performing routine maintenance on the servers in the DataCenter from 2:00 am to 4:00 am CT Wednesday, January 17th, 2018. Payments will not be accepted during this time. No other systems will be impacted.


The Banner system (INB, SSB. Workflow, etc.) will be undergoing upgrades in hardware and patch updates in preparation for Banner 9 beginning at 5:00 pm THURSDAY, February 15. It is expected that the system will be unavailable Friday, February 16 and most of the weekend. Service will be restored as soon as possible upon completion of the upgrades. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you plan your operations accordingly.

This will not impact Blackboard or the MyCampus portal. All other systems will be accessible and work as normal.


The weekend following the 3rd Friday of each month is the regularly scheduled “Maintenance Window” for enterprise IT systems.  Occasionally the dates are adjusted to accommodate other University business processes but in general these are the weekends you can expect downtime on major systems.
