Our computer network and systems undergo regular maintenance to keep it in working condition. This means that systems will be out for short periods of time.

IT maintenance schedule - 2016

Just like your car, the University's computer network and systems undergo regular preventative maintenance to keep them in a healthy, working condition. This means that systems will be unavailable for a short time during maintenance periods.

Details of planned outages can be found on the IT Service Portal at any time.

Reminders for these maintenance periods will be sent out via Twitter and Facebook feeds.
