Storm Update: CACTUS Changes Suspended

The University is taking a number of precautions to protect Penn State’s information technology (IT) systems and infrastructure during the weather event currently impacting the Eastern United States.

At this time, all CACTUS updates will be suspended until further notice. Due to the suspension of these updates, any Penn State Access Account creation or updates will not be possible at this time (including any information changes that go through the ITS Accounts Office, HR, Registrar, etc.). The CACTUS system updates have been taken off-line as a proactive measure in the event of storm-related power disruptions.

For more information related to the CACTUS suspension, please contact Dana Williams at:

The University will continue to provide IT systems and infrastructure updates throughout the duration of the storm.
