ESTERO, Fla.- Florida Gulf Coast University was without email and internet services for much of the day, according to our partners at the News-Press.

According to vice president and chief of staff Susan Evans, the university was without these services as the result of equipment failure on campus since around 7:00 a.m.

Evans said this was unrelated to the Sprint outage.

A piece of computer equipment related to system storage failed, prompting the connectivity issue.

As of 2:30 p.m. Monday the replacement part had not yet reached campus, according to Evans.
