Yes, you will still be able to check status.owens.edu if the website is down. The site is hosted remotely, allowing users to view status updates even during major IT outages.
In the past, Owens has experienced IToutages that have left the college servers inaccessible. During these outages, we haven't had any way of communicating these issues to our users. Because of this, we have been working on setting up a remote site to host our emergency status updates. With the new status.owens.edu page, we are now able to broadcast outages over multiple social media platforms, even if we are experiencing a major outage.
