There may be times where we need to carry out essential maintenance to ensure continued service and minimise disruptions to students and staff.
During these times, the overall IT system will operate as normal. However, particular services or portions of the network may be taken out of service so that security patches, operating system upgrades and bug fixes can be applied.
IT Services will keep you informed about what work we are carrying out and how it will affect you.
Dates of agreed maintenance weekends:
18:00 - Friday 16 December 2022
08:00 - Monday 19 December 2022
18:00 - Friday 31 March 2023
08:00 - Monday 3 April 2023
How maintenance weekends will affect you
During the shutdown weekends, there will be no centrally managed IT service.
This includes services such as:
- wifi networks
- email systems
- electronic library databases and services
- all on-campus PC labs
- UWE Bristol eXternal Access (XA)
- UWE Bristol network (LAN).
Cloud-hosted services will mainly be unaffected, however, there may be some brief outages when you will be unable to log in.
