Student and Faculty Center Maintenance Weekend September 21 and 22

City University of Seattle’s administrative applications for Student, HR, Payroll and Finance will be unavailable part of this weekend for maintenance. This is a planned monthly maintenance that ensures the stability and availability of our administrative PeopleSoft systems. These systems will be offline beginning Saturday September 21st at 4:00 p.m. PT. Maintenance will be completed no later than 2:00 p.m. PT on Sunday, September 22nd. This outage will affect students’ ability to register for classes and access their records through the Student Center. Teaching faculty will not have access to the Faculty Center for attendance and grading.

Blackboard, email and library services will remain available.

September 17th is Constitution Day

In 1956, Congress established Constitution Week beginning each year on September 17th – the date in 1787 when delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia signed the Constitution. In 2005, Congress designated September 17th as Constitution Day to promote a better understanding of the Constitution and the governing principles of our nation. To learn more click here.


Attention U.S. Students: Purchasing Course Resources

Effective Fall quarter, students in the U.S. may use a vendor of their own choosing to purchase the resources listed on their Course Resource Guides, accessible by clicking the Find Your Textbook button on the library homepage or the Course Overviews and Resources link on the portal.

Required and recommended online resources that are available to students at no cost are listed on Course Resource Guides (available 24/7) or in Blackboard courses (available 3 days prior to the start of class).

The move away from a dedicated online bookstore is a direct result of the evolving textbook marketplace and buying patterns of CityU students.
