WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Access to Wichita State University's systems has been restored after it was limited Monday following a hacking attempt. 

WSU said in a statement that the university disconnected several of its systems "to isolate an unauthorized attempt by a third party to access the University’s systems."

"Over the weekend, Wichita State University took proactive measures and disconnected several University systems to isolate an unauthorized attempt by a third party to access the University’s systems. Most of the University system access has been restored and there has been no indication that any of the University’s secure data or information has been compromised. The University will continue to engage its security protocols in restoring full availability of all networks and systems, prioritizing student needs.

"At this time, we anticipate that the University will have restoration of all networks and major systems by tomorrow, but we are also mindful that these incidents often create residual issues and future interruptions may occur. Cyber incidents have unfortunately become more common, especially in large organizations like WSU. The University has and continues to devote the necessary resources to its digital infrastructure to guard against unauthorized access. We appreciate the Shocker community’s continued patience."


"I feel like it's increased my anxiety levels a lot more than I needed especially like just normal levels of anxiety when you have that many tests a week," said pre-med biological sciences student Chloe Schoenhofer about the internet being down at WSU.

This past weekend an unsuccessful cyber attack resulted in WSU disconnecting several of the university's systems. Most of the access has been restored allowing some students WIFI capability while others have had to use their hotspots or play the waiting game.

One student said she writes everything in her notebooks making this setback easier for her to navigate. She added that she feels for some of her classmates who rely on their I-Pads.

The campus remains open and classes will continue with any necessary interruptions. WSU apologized for any disruptions and asked students and staff to contact their instructors or supervisors for any help.
