The University of Connecticut has closed its online state journal registration and the state journal is shutting down at 20 on Friday.
The online journal, which had a staff of 12, will be shut down at 11 p.m. on Friday, said the Connecticut State Journal’s director of communications, Mark Tischler.
The online journal is expected to resume on Monday.
Tischler said the registration was closed because of a problem with a single, large student.
He said the university had an online database of more than 50,000 students.
The university had planned to start accepting applications for new students in early March, but the registration had to be suspended after a student died.
The state journal, founded in 1921, has been a leader in covering state politics and is the oldest state journal in the country.
The newspaper has been in print since 1919 and has a circulation of about 500,000.
The closure comes after the newspaper’s online site was hacked earlier this year, forcing the newspaper to halt publication.
