Save the Date: April 20-21, 2024, PeopleTools Upgrade to 8.60

MyU & PeopleSoft will be unavailable during the PeopleTools upgrade on April 23-24

On April 20 and 21, 2024 (Saturday and Sunday), University IT intends to upgrade the PeopleSoft development platform—PeopleTools—to version 8.60, pending successful completion of testing. 

This upgrade helps our PeopleSoft systems remain stable and secure, and ensures we retain Oracle support.

Mark your calendars for the upgrade weekend so that you can plan around the service outage accordingly. 


  • MyU and PeopleSoft applications, and some applications dependent on PeopleSoft, will be unavailable while the upgrade is in progress. More detail will be available in the coming weeks.
  • Aside from downtime during the weekend, no significant impact is expected.
  • The project team is already engaged with business partners to conduct testing and coordinate the specific timing of the upgrade. 
  • Business partners need to coordinate with integration partners for testing. If a system you manage integrates with PeopleSoft, someone from the business process area will reach out to you to coordinate testing.


We will provide periodic updates throughout the spring semester. Stay tuned for future communications and final confirmation of the upgrade weekend. 

The planned maintenance and service disruption will be communicated broadly to the University community, systemwide through the
Brief newsletter and MyU, in the weeks leading up to the event.

During the upgrade weekend, updates will be available on the
University’s Service Status page
