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.
Maintenance weekends involve the shutdown of all IT Services provisions to students and staff.
Dates of agreed maintenance weekends:
18:00 - Friday 31 March 2023
08:00 - Monday 3 April 2023
